Composer Tan Dun has published a Video titled “Prayer and Blessing”, a virtual performance that was live-streamed from New York and Shanghai on April 12, 2020, uniting artists from 12 countries and conducted by the composer.
In Tan Dun’s words:
“That day, I finished conducting and habitually turned around. No audience, only silence. It was the first time I ever felt the silence and loneliness after conducting. I walked off the podium and thought to myself, what just happened was not only a piece of music. It was a monument in sound.”
