When the Korean composer Isang Yun died in Berlin in 1995 at the age of 78, there still was a touch of the exotic about his oeuvre, characterised by the cultural fusion between Asia and Europe. He is known primarily as a composer of five symphonies, numerous orchestral works and five operas. Amongst this output, however, his almost 50 chamber music works occupy a central position. Yun s affinity for the accordion, whose capability for sound modulation strongly attracted the composer, has played an essential role in the selection of works for this CD. In the Concertino and Intermezzo it is heard from beginning to end. In Pezzo fantasioso per due strumenti con basso ad libitum the performers have decided in favour of violin, accordion and cello. In the case of the Duo for viola and piano, the piano part has been transcribed by Stefan Hussong for accordion.
