As an 56 y/o Afro Asian, when the New Philharmonic orchestra performed the old korean “folk song”, it brought me to tears. My (deceased )Japanese mom used to sing that song all of the time, yet I never knew the song’s origin is Korean, considering and understanding why the Korean people used to hate the Japanese people (older generation). Selecting the folklore song to perform was a magnificent idea. It so sad to know that Koreans on both sides (north and south) have not seen some of their relatives since the 1950’s.
With the current events as is, as I listen to this song I again reflect upon the sadness of the north and south korean people who were separated due to the civil war, most have since passed on never again able to see their loved ones. Such cuelty for no real good reason.
As one who grew up listening to jazz, blues and gospel music, this concert had me spelledbound. I loved it from start to finish. I even ordered the CDs….thanks for the beautiful music.
If they were performing for Franco’s Spain, there would be far more controversy
