모란봉악단 - 그 품 떠나 못살아
Music: Ri Jong-o (리종오) 1989
String quartet: Sonu Hyang-hui (선우향희), Hong Su-kyong (홍수경), Cha Yong-mi (차영미), Yu Un-jong (유은정)
Recorded: 2012.07.28 Mokran Video, DPRK
Ri Jong-o only wrote the original melody. A more appropriate name for this piece would perhaps be "Impromptu over We cannot live apart from His bosom" written by an unknown composer/arranger. Anyway a good example of contemporary classical DPRK music.
At the performance this piece was placed right after the simple pop song Let's study (배우자) as if they wanted to tell the audience "Yes, we can handle whatever musical style they throw upon us".
