Press Quotes

“From its opening bars the music pulled the audience into the endless abyss of the cosmos, soon filling the whole concert hall with magnificent echoes. It was like taking a spacewalk into the infinite universe.”
Chuson Ilbo, Seoul

“Chin’s mysterious soundworld including the tones of the magnificent organ was outstanding… The primary colours were provided by string harmonics, the sparkling sound of harp, celesta, chimes and glockenspiel, and miraculous choral writing recalling Gustav Holst’s Neptune the Mystic, together with a dynamism akin to Stravinsky’s music.”
Yonhap News, Seoul
