The Sanjo is an improvisatory composition for various solo instruments accompanied by the Changgo (hourglass drum) in Korean traditional folk music. It usually consists of four or five movements. Each movement is composed upon the basic rhythm which is distinct from movement to movement in terms of its tempo and basic pattern. unlike western music these movements are played without pauses and the tempi of the movements get progressively faster from the beginning to the end of the piece. This work, which is fully modeled after the Korean traditional Sanjo, consists of four movements (very slow - slow - moderate - fast) and utilizes the typical rhythms of the traditional Sanjo as well as tunes based upon traditional Korean modes. It was written in 1993.
