Two exciting commissioning projects were a bright spot during this very dark year. They are Thomas Piercy’s Moments in this Time and Los Angeles-based piano duo Hocket’s #What2020SoundsLike.
For each project composers were asked to write short pieces that represent an incredible array of styles and mental states as all navigate this difficult time.
We talk with the performers and feature a sample of the 90 – that’s right, 90! – commissioned pieces.
