Music for Self-Isolation: Compositions


Music for Self-Isolation by Frank Horvat

In the Spring of 2020, Canadian composer, Frank Horvat, composed the following short pieces for various unaccompanied solo and duo instruments and voice. The idea is to perform new music composed during, and about, the pandemic to raise the spirits of musicians and the greater community while in self-isolation.
