The work comprises in five parts, totaling twenty minutes: "Prelude—Exploring the modes", "Meditation on Eternity", "Lofty Peaks", "Profound Gorges", and finally a brief "Codetta". Composed using Western notation, the score includes a full English glossary of the symbols used to indicate various playing techniques. Originally composed for 18-string gayageum accompanied by a quartet of Korean instruments, Eternal Pine is here presented in a version for solo gayageum accompanied on changgu, first premiered in 2010.
