Younghi Pagh-Paan – live auf Deutschlandfunk Kultur

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 commercialization and the violence of globalization. Carried by a Tao-influenced ethics, her musical aesthetics is inextricably linked with a politics of care rarely to be found in contemporary music.
To celebrate the awarding of the Großer Berliner Kunstpreis by Akademie der Künste to the composer Younghi Pagh-Paan, this concert with KNM Berlin presents a selection of her works spanning a period of five decades.
The concert (originally planned for MaerzMusik | Berliner Festspiele) is produced by the music section of the Akademie der Künste Berlin und Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
