Yoon teams with Frank for Nebraska finale

Hyeyung Yoon and Gabriela Lena Frank
Hyeyung Yoon and Gabriela Lena Frank will join for a farewell concert 7:30 p.m. April 13 in Kimball Recital Hall.

In a farewell concert celebrating her 13 years of teaching and performing at the Glenn Korff School of Music, violinist Hyeyung Yoon will be joined by composer and pianist Gabriela Lena Frank in a 7:30 p.m. April 13 concert in Kimball Recital Hall. The event will feature compositions by Frank.

The event is free and open to the public.

Inspired by the works of Bela Bartók and Alberto Ginastera, Frank’s pieces often reflect her studies of Latin American folklore, incorporating poetry, mythology and native musical styles into a western classical framework that is uniquely her own.

Featured on the program are Frank’s “Sueños de Chambi: Snapshots for an Andean Album for Violin and Piano,” a work inspired by Martín Chambi, the first Amerindian photographer to achieve international acclaim and “Suite Mestiza for Solo Violin,” a work composed just last year.

Also on the concert are “Violin Duos” by Béla Bartók performed by Yoon and students from her studio, Ye-Eun Cho and Grace Pugh and Frank’s “Adagio para Amantaní,” performed by cellist Gregory Beaver and Frank.

Yoon’s current project includes creating classical music performances based on the Korean concept of madang.

Madang translates as the name of the courtyard of a traditional Korean house, but can also mean an open space, usually outdoors, where varied activities such as performances, public meetings and festivals take place.

A deeper and more nuanced meaning of the term is a time and space where boundaries that exist between different groups of people, including performers and audience, are obscured.

The performance will also be live webcast.
