The mission of this joint concert by the Liszt Academy and EWHA Women’s University is to create harmony between internationally-recognized and popular melodies (Dohnányi, Mendelssohn, Mozart), cello ensemble arrangements with a Hungarian rhythm (Brahms, Kodály) and the traditional South Korean tonal-scape, as well as singing and opera literature. South Korean traditional instruments are played as one of the highpoints of the recital, associating the body resonances of vocals and embedded in classical works, thus introducing an element of the exotic to familiar melodies. The concert’s diverse programme shows a cross section of the activities of the two schools, as well as giving insight into the wide range of international relationships pursued by the Liszt Academy.
