Music from Korea is the focus of this 1991 New Sounds program From the Vaults. Peter Gordon, the American sax player, composer, and bandleader, spent a year in Korea, becoming conversant in the striking classical music of that country and learning to play the piri, the Korean oboe. He demonstrates the instrument and shares some recordings of Korea’s “national living treasures.”
