This Live to Stereo DSD 128 recording features music from the European Baroque period to 20th Century American and Korean melodies beautifully interpreted by Korean French Soprano Mi Ja Kim accompanied by organist Jean-Marie Fritz.

In deciding to make this recording, my intention is to mix Western music, both Baroque (Vivaldi, Handel) and post-Romantic (Fauré, Barber) with Korean melodies, which are themselves marked by European Romanticism, since the composers of these melodies are contemporary and are familiar with western classical music.

This journey is between the West and the East and through various languages (Korean, Latin, French, German, English) and is a voyage through the four seasons. These Korean melodies, and more widely the poetry of my native country, evoke the seasons and the beauty of nature; it is sensitive and very rich in poetry that meets the European poetry of Romanticism. These Korean melodies are usually accompanied in Korea on the piano or by a symphony orchestra.

We chose the Organ because this instrument gives an original touch to the sound color that highlights the originality and specificity of each song. The Organ is an instrument that relies on wind just as the voice does and refers to both the Baroque tradition and the orchestra by its symphonic nature. So another way to associate the East with the West.
