The Cello Concerto, written in 1975/6 for Siegried Palm who plays it here, is a powerful, angry work, with vehement utterances from the cello interrupted or underpinned by violent orchestral outbursts, with some poetic, bird-like woodwind trilling - a typical Yun gesture - buried deep in the texture. The Concerto does go through more appeased moments, although always an underlying tension and sense of pent-up menace. Other typical gestures of Yun are the quarter tone string glissandos you can hear between 4 and 7:00, or the delicately tinkering bells over high-pitch string tremolos at 11:40 announcing a new outburst, or again the ghostly tapestry of string glissandos at 23:30. The Sonata for oboe, harp and viola from 1979 was …..

Unlike Mozart's Clarinet Quintet (with masterly descendants by Brahms and Reger), Mozart's Oboe Quartet (one of the most distinguished works of oboe literature) remained without successors for over one and a half centuries. ….. So it was only natural that I should ask two of my closest friends to write something for this at once problematic and fascinating formation. Both composers had already made very significant contributions to the oboe literature: Elliott Carter (who, as a student, played the oboe himself) with such works as the Oboe Concerto, the "Trilogy" for Oboe and Harp and the Italian song settings "Tempo e Tempi"; Isang Yun with his Oboe Concerto, the Double Concerto for Oboe and Harp, the Sonata for Oboe, Viola and Harp, the Inventions for Two Oboes and many other works.

Isang Yun was a Korean-born composer who made his later career in Germany. Yun's primary musical concern was the development of Korean music by the means of Western avantgarde music. After experimenting with 12-tone techniques Yun developed his own musical personality in his works of the early 1960s, post-serialistic "sound compositions". Yun's music employed techniques associated with traditional Korean music, such as glissandi, pizzicati, portamenti, vibrati, and above all a very rich vocabulary of ornaments. Essential is the presence of multiple-melodic lines, which Yun called "Haupttöne" ("central" or "main tones")…..

Isang Yun's second symphony was composed in 1984 and first performed by Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin conducted by Jesus Lopez-Cobos. Its orchestral setting is smaller than first symphony. Yun used Yin(Dark) and Yang(Light) conception in this symphony. For example, strings and woodwinds are light and angelic dimension. In contrast, brass and percussions are dark and demonic dimension. But these elements fuse in last movement's coda……

Yun's composition for symphonic forces started with "sound compositions", i. e. of works, in which homogeneous sound planes are articulated and elaborated: "Bara" (1960) until "Overture" (1973; rev. 1974). A period of discursively structured instrumental concertos followed, beginning with the "Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra" (1975/76), and climaxing with the "Violin Concerto No. 1" (1981). From 1982 until 1987 he wrote a cycle of five symphonies which are interrelated, yet varied structurally. Striving for freedom and peace is above all "Symphony V" for high baritone and large orchestra (1987) with texts by Nelly Sachs. In 1984 he developed also a new, intimiate "tone" in his chamber music.

The concertina rarely features in classical music outside the work of Astor Piazzolla or Pauline Oliveiros, and its use alongside strings in these four pieces is indicative of the Korean composer Isang Yun's (1917-1995) fondness for unusual instrumental combinations. The Taoist principles behind his work are perhaps most evident in the rising figures representing the shift from darkness to light in Duo, or the contrast between the high, bird-like violins and the vibrant chord-clusters of Stefan Hussong's accordion in Concertino.

The Korean composer Isang Yun (Yun Yi Sang), son of the Korean poet Yun Ki Hyon, studied in Japan, during the war taking part in secret anti-Japanese activities that led to his imprisonment in 1943. After the war he was able to play a part in the revival of Korean culture. From 1956 to 1957 he studied in Paris and thereafter for a year at the Berlin Musikhochschule with Boris Blacher, Josef Rufer and Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling. His abduction to Seoul by agents of the South Korean regime of Chung Hee Park in 1967 led to international protest and in 1969 he was granted an amnesty and allowed to return to Germany as a political refugee. In Germany he held a position of some distinction, receiving a number of awards, while in North Korea he was honored by the establishment of an institute bearing his name. He died in Berlin in 1995.

The Novus String Quartet was founded in 2007 at the National University of the Arts in Seoul. After critical success in Korea, they moved to Germany in 2011. This début album sits at the crossroads of their Korean and German influences. Demonstrating prodigious technique at the service of exceptional musicality, their versions of Werbern's Langsamer Satz and Beethoven's String Quartet No.11 stand up to any comparisons. Isang Yun's Quartet No.1 integrates Korean musical folklore with dazzling colors in the style of Bartók.
