 Update me on new releases by Yun

Isang Yun (9/17/1917 - 11/03/1995)

The Korean composer Isang Yun (Yun Yi Sang), son of the Korean poet Yun Ki Hyon, studied in Japan, during the war taking part in secret anti-Japanese activities that led to his imprisonment in 1943. After the war he was able to play a part in the revival of Korean culture. From 1956 to 1957 he studied in Paris and thereafter for a year at the Berlin Musikhochschule with Boris Blacher, Josef Rufer and Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling. The meetings at Darmstadt provided a formative influence. His abduction to Seoul by agents of the South Korean regime of Chung Hee Park in 1967 led to international protest and in 1969 he was granted an amnesty and allowed to return to Germany as a political refugee. He taught at the Hanover Musikhochschule and from 1970 at the parallel institution in Berlin. In Germany he held a position of some distinction, receiving a number of awards, while in North Korea he was honoured by the establishment of an institute bearing his name. He died in Berlin in 1995.
