Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be the perfect introduction to the world of Korean instruments, with simple and yet informative descriptions of various instruments. It was exceptionally interesting, and yet was not too long, thus keeping the reader's attention. I was especially happy when the book took into account instrumental developments in North Korea, thus providing a wider picture of Korea's musical development. A must for world music students and Koreanologists alike!!!

HASH(0x9a27aaec) out of 5 stars Too Short Nov. 17 2007

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great information is packed into this book-- but it's only got 67 pages of text, including many photographs. It's worth getting as a reference, but will probably just make you wish Howard had kept going for another 100 pages.
