The members are considered to be among the best musicians in Korea, and together the leading ensemble perfoming Korean classical music in an authentic form. Gajin Hoesang is one of four orchestral suites derived from Yeongsan Hoesang, literally meaning 'congregation at the spiritual mountain' a kind of combination of the austere atmosphere of court music and meditative Buddhist music. The three pieces on this CD are also the most popular repertoire of pungryu music, originally enjoyed by 18th century literati. The music begins with a solemn and extremely slow tempo, gradually becoming livelier. You can listen to samples of all tracks.
