Dong-yun presents herself very well here. She has a lovely tone, with a nice vibrato and a broad dynamic range. Her technique is very strong and well suited to the technical demands of the music. The recording is excellent for a "live" performance it sounds very natural. The bassoon and piano balance is excellent, as well. Especially noteworthy is her performance of the Persichetti, where she displays fine control over the instrument, and the Flament Concert Piece, which alternates convincingly between being both flash and melancholy.
This is a very well done CD-exceptional for a live performance-and I rate this CD very highly.

The second CD is another celebration to the Dong-Yun Kwon who merited full attention from the Double Reed in 1997, when she played her first CD. This is her prime example to show that performance speaks itself, no matter where and when.

The bassoon sound has many colors, pastoral, peaceful and lyrical. Here Dong-yun Kwon's tone adds the "feminine touch". The bassoon is known to be a very difficult solo instrument to control, but Dong-Yun handles all the challenges with ease, while bringing out her personality through the bassoon and her music.
