Five Moods for Flute - Byung Eun Yoo

In this piece, written in 1981 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the composer tried to depict or give rise to certain states of the human mind in a very brief and compact structure using various contemporary flute techniques. Although the sound and style of the piece is basically in the western avant-gardism from the 1050s or 60s, there can be seen two characteristic traits that were seminal for the composer's later development. One is the emotive nature of the whole piece and the other is the use of a Korean traditional mode in the third piece, of Meditation.
