Espace I (1992) by Isang Yun
for cello and piano

This late piece features the timbres of the cello's high range and suggests a French sensibility. Hubert Culot writes: "I-Sang Yun's Espace I for cello and piano is a prime example of the composer's hard-won tone of voice. This beautiful piece is also quite accessible and could well earn Yun many new admirers. It unfolds in continuous alternations and relaxations before reaching a moving coda of great beauty."
