In October 2017, Korean Sounds presents the fourth concert in the series and it is all about Love. Universally and in all ages, music has been a messenger of love.

This concert focuses on the dramatic genres – opera from the West and Pansori (musical storytelling) from the East. In the first half of the concert, pansori singers Eunhye Jung and Sukki Yoon perform various excerpts out of the pansori literature, including three love songs from the most famous pansori ‘Chunhyangga’.

In the second half of the concert, Korean tenor Keonwoo Kim and Australian soprano Lauren Fagan, both from the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme of the Royal Opera House, showcase opera arias. The concert concludes with Puccini’s love duet from the opera La bohéme, ‘O Soave Fanciulla’.
