Throwback ‘Composer portrait: Seung-Won Oh’

4 September 2023

On February 18 of this year, The Ensemble Academy offered a Composer Portrait of South Korean-born Seung-Won Oh. Watch the video compilation of this special evening below!

Writing in a contemporary idiom, Oh organically intertwines her Korean musical heritage with an innate sense of structural form and musical development. Her formal ideas mix with her affinity with traditional Korean music, as well as with music theatre, a unique category within her output, with which Oh researches non-western topics while striving to optimize the balance between western techniques and non-western concepts.
