We seem to lack index entries for Yun Isang (Korea, Yun is the family name) and William Russo (US).


In the case of Yun, I feel that 'Korea' is the correct designation as he was born before the split and the war and its aftereffects figure into a lot of his works. However, it may be difficult to sustain a 'just Korea' category if we add other, younger Korean composers. So if we need to make the distinction, he's South Korean.

Added. Thanks for noticing.

Yun was already listed under Germany (presumably because much of his career was there.) Should he be removed from the Germany section and only listed under (South) Korea?

KevinP

I thought I had searched for Yun and didn't see him, but it's possible I used 'Korea' as my search term.

I have a hard time thinking of him as anything but Korean, but I've lived in Korea for over a quarter-century. But the important thing is that he's listed.

So was I when I started that thread a couple years back :D Thanks!

Another composer to add to the list:

Anton Arensky

Thank you.
Part of the tragedy of the Palestinians is that they have essentially no international support for a good reason: they've no wealth, they've no power, so they've no rights.

Thank you.

I merged the Arensky threads and added him to the list.

Thanks. BTW, I didn't remember there was a thread already.
