Abstract:This study in divided into five chapters. Chapter one provides an introduction to the study. Chapter two provides the brief overview of general Korean history of the nineteenth century, and a historical survey of Western music in Korea from 1880s to 1945. Chapter three presents a scholarly study of Korean traditional music, which includes overview of the types of music, and philosophical and aesthetic views of Korean music. Chapter four focuses on several flute works by Korean composers: Sori for flute solo (1988) by Isang Yun, Poem for flute solo (1978) by Kyung-sun Suh, and Yellow Wind for flute and computer (2001) by Minsoo Cho. These works are analyzed briefly, in order to demonstrate the Korean musical elements and cross-cultural elements from the scores. Chapter five presents a detailed analysis of Garak for flute and piano (1963) by Isang Yun. The changes in the composer's musical style, aesthetic priorities, and philosophical approaches throughout his compositional career in Europe are discussed.
