Won-Sook Hur (piano)
In 1819, Diabelli had a surprising initiative: he presented no less than fifty music composers of the Austrian Empire with a short waltz that he had composed, asking each of them to create one variation on its theme. Of these composers, many have now been forgotten, often rightly so, while some were unquestionably talented (Hummel, Czerny, Kalkbrenner, Moscheles), and finally, three are illustrious: Liszt (then 11 year-old!), Schubert and Ludwig van Beethoven. In his Suite, Ryu reaches for Baroque techniques, yet he does not juxtapose dance forms in it, but other popular genres at that time, e.g., fugue, toccata, or choral, referring to the extremely rich repertoire of the composers of the 16th and 17th centuries, with Bach opening the list. Jeajoon RYU (born 1970) is a young South Korean composer and pianist. He was born in Seoul; he studied composition with Kang Suk-hi at the Seoul National University. He came to Poland to pursue further studies. He made an excellent choice at the Cracow Academy of Music he was in the class of Krzysztof Penderecki, a worldwide renowned composer and performer.
