About this Piece

My first piano concerto was a commission to be performed at Little Island last year by Adam Tendler and the String Orchestra of Brooklyn. Upon completion I was unsure really what it was about, but actually at the premiere of the piece, I realized I had inadvertently written a piece describing a two-year period. Filled with beautiful moments in my life that I will hold forever, moments of confusion, self-doubt, pain and all those feelings I’m sure everyone has felt in some way within the last couple of years. Influences abound in this one, if you want to know more about that please feel free to ask me!   —Devonté Hynes
