Cellist-Composer Okkyung Lee’s ‘The Crow Flew After Yi Sang’ Reviewed


Okkyung Lee

Cover of Okkyung Lee

The latest release from Okkyung Lee garners a lengthy review:

Since her first release in 2005, cellist and composer Okkyung Lee has quickly positioned herself as one of the premier Korean purveyors of avant-garde classical music. To the uninitiated listener, Okkyung’s recordings may at first appear obtuse to the point of being unapproachable. They weave seamlessly between harsh sound and lithe sonority, between true noise and genuine music.
