Wooden Fish Ensemble Old First Concerts February 10, 2013 Performed by Yun-kyong Jin, piri and Thomas Schultz, piano The title PIA combines the words "piri" (Korean bamboo oboe) and "piano". In Korean, "pi" and "a" means "You and I". Piri is a small instrument, limited in both range and agility. Yet, with the piri, each note is flexible; it can produce many types of vibrato, also glissandi, and micro tones. In comparison, the piano possesses great range and agility, but a note, once played, is fixed. These two instruments are as different as You (PI) and I (A). The composer (Hyo-shin Na) was attracted to these differences and wrote each part keeping in mind the nature of that instrument. Pia was written for Chi-wan Park in 2007.
