Cue of the Week: “Dusk in Ancient Koryo”


This week’s selection is a lyrical, Far Eastern-flavored theme in two parts: an optimistic opening for strings and Korean daegum flute, followed by a more mournful passage for English horn. Though harmonized in a traditional Western style, the music makes use of a pentatonic (a.k.a. “black keys on the piano”) scale often associated with folk music of Pacific Rim countries.

    Thank you Michael! We loved your music. I asked mommy to play it again and again. (if it’s part of a bigger piece, where can I listen to the whole thing?)
