The final concert of the series is based around the theme Dance. Dance and music have been inseparable from the very beginning with their origins being in ancient rituals.

Members of the National Orchestra of Korea will perform traditional ensemble music ‘Sinawi’ and ‘Daepungryu’ as well as contemporary pieces written by Sung Kook Kim and Ji Hye Choi. ‘Sinawi’ was originally performed by shaman-musicians during rituals that accompanied the shaman’s songs and dances. ‘Daepungryu’ is a music that is still widely performed in shamanic rituals, mask dances, and festive occasions.

The Philharmonia Chamber Players will then take to the stage. Antonin Dvorák’s interest in dance music came from his Czech background with traditional Bohemian folk dances being part of his heritage. His much-loved string quintet No 2 Op 77 is put alongside Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango.
