Enjoy a meditative hour of stringed Komungo set to p’ungnyu, the classical ensemble music of Korean nobility and central theme of this autumn's performance series. The Korea Society here presents p’ungnyu in its chul-p’ungnyu (stringed-instrument) form. P’ungnyu also refers to a state of leisure when one is elevated from the mundane to better appreciate poetry, music and companionship.
Accompanying the opening of Highlights, this meditative short performance of six-stringed komungo celebrates p’ungnyu, the classical ensemble music of Korean nobility. As a philosophy, p’ungnyu refers to a state of leisure where one celebrates arts and companionship.
