From Bang on a Can All-Star pianist Vicky Chow:

“This special project came about during the pandemic, when artists were struggling to connect and be “together” in the way we know how: by making music.  Armando and I asked our friends and colleagues to be a part of this commissioning project. Everyone that is involved is connected to one another; it feels deeply personal for us as performers, that we banded together to move forward from a very strange place of isolation and anxiety for the future.

Thank you Armando, for this piece, and for giving us something beautiful on which we could collaborate – and be together. To all these wonderful musicians, my friends, salut!”

Check out this excerpt from the piece, Vicky Chow playing “Canción Sentimental”
