When I started the Music for Self-Isolation project in March 2020, I envisioned that a year later we’d have an album that would not only contain the solos and duos written for lockdown but also a large ensemble piece called All Together Now. Alas, this was still not possible in January 2021 when the album was recorded, so instead, I wrote Together in Spirit.
Thanks to technology, we could all still come together virtually and celebrate a joyful future when musicians and audiences will be able to be in person again.
