Younghi Pagh-Paan 75

Born into a Korean working-class family, Younghi Pagh-Paan became the first woman in Germany to hold a chair in composition in 1994, where she became an important teacher for the younger generation. Her energetic yet gentle music seeks connections between Korean tradition and European modernity, both traditions that are pushed to the edge of social perception by commercial mass culture. To celebrate Pagh-Paan’s 75th birthday on 30 November 2020, WERGO has released the unique portrait CD “Silken Thread” with excellent first recordings. The book “Auf dem Weg zur musikalischen Symbiose” by Schott Music has also just been published to match this.
