The Arirang is an enchanting traditional Korean folk melody, full of elegance and simple nobility. It tells a moving story of love.

The composer writes:

"I have tried to make the melody shine while offering it perhaps another shade of color from my own musical palette. It is my hope the fondness and love that I hold for this wonderful Korean Folksong, Arirang, will be felt by those who hear my arrangement."
