Younghi Pagh-Paan, Großer Kunstpreis Berlin 2020


Younghi Pagh-Paan’s (*1945) music – “so free and so fine”, as it was aptly described – speaks to the condition of
the present in a moving way. Rooted in her formative experience of migration and her persistent practice of intercultural dialogue, the work of the South Korean composer, who made Germany her new home in 1974, fosters a circumspect vision of a life free of colonial domination, boundless commercialisation and the violence of globalisation. Carried by a Tao-influenced ethics, her musical aesthetics is inextricably linked with a politics
of care rarely found in contemporary music. To celebrate the awarding of the Großer Berliner Kunstpreis, this concert with KNM Berlin presents a selection works
by Younghi Pagh-Paan spanning a period of five decades, from her early “Man-Nam I”, in which sounds of traditional Korean instruments are artfully interwoven, until her recent First String Quartet.
