Jong-Iongh

I was very pleasured to be asked to compose a piece for a real, human baby. Well, actually for their parents. I have left my sound recording device at their home for several weeks and asked them to record the sounds of the baby as much as possible. I then wrote a piano piece that was inspired by Vingt regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus, by Olivier Messiaen. You can listen to the track below. The wonderful playing is by my dear friend Helena Basilova. By the way: It a girl!
