Biography

The soaring, impassioned Symphonies nos. 1 & 3 of Isang Yun come from the heart of a man persecuted by the paranoia of the state "authorities" -- works written after he was twice imprisoned by South Korean police on suspicion of espionage, even once being kidnapped by them from Europe and forced back to South Korea. (He is, of course, innocent of these "crimes.") Yun is one of our fine new symphonists. ~ Blue Gene Tyranny
