Hwaum Chamber Orchestra, Korean Cultural Center in Budapest (Hungary)

Two composers ― Jiesun Lim from South Korea and László Tihanyi from Hungary ― are teamed up to explore possibilities of different ways of seeing the folklores beyond the national, regional boundaries. Jiesun Lim will compose a new musical piece using the Hungarian folklore materials while László Tihanyi using the ones of the Korean folklores. With the attempts to deconstruct national sentiments and musical structures that are supposedly embedded in the folklores of each country and to reconstruct them with post-modern musical languages, folklores will achieve new qualities and contexts that exist far beyond certain cultural boundaries.  The Weiner Ensemble, a Hungarian chamber ensemble which is passionate about new chamber music repertoires, as well as Hosung Chung, a Korean cellist who’s currently actively working in Hungary, will play the major roles for the premieres of these new compositions.
