About this Item


  • Bridges: Cliff Eidelman & Jenny Lin


  • Composer Cliff Eidelman was paired with pianist Jenny Lin to write a new work for solo piano entitled "Bridges," which premiered on June 18, 2020.

    From the Composer:
    In the spirit of "The Boccaccio Project," I reflected on the times we are all collectively living through and with this music, I found myself yearning toward a day when the world could all cross the bridge back into life. "Bridges" went through several incarnations before I started to see the shape and the themes more clearly. I wanted to create a piano work worthy of virtuoso Jenny Lin and that is partly what kept me going back to the drawing board. After trying so many possibilities, the piece took shape. Upon finishing, I looked back on it and realized that the work crossed over four bridges into different contrasting scenes to be interpreted by the listener.
    -- Cliff Eidelman
