"On the day when all BTS members were enlisted, the echoes of 'This Song' filled the Seoul Arts Center in Korea.
On the 12th, Il Giardino Armonico, a baroque music group, and Avi Avital, a mandolin player, performed at the Seoul Arts Center. The performers returned to the stage for an encore, receiving applause after their main performance.
The mandolin, an ancient instrument originating in 17th-century Italy, took the lead, accompanied by the exciting rhythms of the harpsichord, recorder, and baroque orchestral players.
They played BTS's hit, 'Dynamite.'
Coincidentally, on the day when all BTS members entered military service, the record of BTS's song being played for the first time emerged at Korea's leading Performing Arts Space, the Seoul Arts Center.
Although the members' enlistment dates and the performance happened to overlap, it highlighted the global influence of BTS's music.
This encore marked the world premiere of 'Dynamite,' arranged in a baroque chamber version.
On this day, a modern song featuring the flute, a traditional Korean instrument, also had its world premiere.
The composition was created by Giovanni Antonini, the conductor and recorder player of Il Giardino Armonico, while practicing with a flute gifted to a Korean musician.
Baroque music masters like Vivaldi, Handel, and Bach, known for playing European music in the 17th and 18th centuries in their contemporary styles, left a lasting impression in Seoul by connecting with the Korean traditional flute and 21st-century BTS music."
