Editorial Reviews

The Daegeum is one of the three bamboo flutes that originated during the Silla Dynasty (57 BC 935 AD), including the Junggeum (medium-sized flutes), and the Sogeum (small flutes). The Daegeum is the largest, measuring nearly three-feet long. In addition to the six finger holes there is an extra hole covered with a thin membrane called a cheong." This bamboo film membrane gives the Daegeum its unique tonal qualities, namely its piercing attacks and mellow, nasal, buzzing sound. For this recording, Hong JongJin has selected a program of music from the Jeongak repertoire. Jeongak (literally "proper music" or "elegant music") was the music of the aristocracy and literati and was played at royal palaces, public offices and Pungryubang, the private music clubs where noblemen enjoyed themselves singing songs and playing instruments. Jeongak is the embodiment of Confucian aesthetics: balance, restraint, simplicity and the perfect articulation of every tone. Hong's delicate ornaments and superbly controlled tonal shadings are the musical equivalent of an exquisite scroll of ancient calligraphy. Hong JongJin has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards throughout his career and is the designated holder of Intangible Cultural Property No. 20 for Daegeum Jeongak. In addition to being a recognized authority on Korean traditional music, Hong is a frequent collaborator with many contemporary artists and ensembles, including the critically acclaimed avant garde Geomungo player Jin Hi Kim and the International New Music Consortium.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Korean daegeum is a large transverse bamboo flute that originated in the Silla Dynasty two thousand years ago. Normally, the instrument is part of duets or larger ensembles. Here, the flute performs solo with arrangements of 11 old songs from formal court gagok music to military marches. The wide mouthpiece and the reed membrane in the body of the flute with breathing techniques give the instrument a strong sound. Recorded in studio without electronic editing, the SACD album lasts 62 minutes. The insert includes photographs, a history of the instrument, and rèsumè of musician Jong Jin Hong. The album is part of a series of connoisseur recordings, beautifully packaged with excellent sound. My only complaint, very minor, is with the limited range of sound of the instrument itself. A tedium sets in despite the variation of warble and rhythm. Otherwise, the album is a nice addition to the series.
