Soprano Hera Hyesang Park and pianist Bretton Brown give a recital that celebrates Park’s Korean heritage, finding parallels and contrasts between western repertoire and Korean art and folk-song.
In weaving together western classical music and Korean art songs and folk-song arrangements, Park and Brown find the common threads that unite different cultures. A Korean Boat Song and Caplet’s boat bob alongside Rossini and Hahn’s gondolas, and there are floral tributes from Alma Mahler and Samuel Barber, as well as spiritual reflections from Errollyn Wallen and Thomas Frederick Dunhill.
Hera Hysesang Park shows real integrity in her programming: ‘Instead of making myself perform a list of songs that might impress others’ she opts to ‘take a chance on myself and perform songs that resonate with my core values’. Known for his sensitive and responsive musicianship, Japanese American pianist Bretton Brown is in great demand as a song accompanist and chamber musician.
