Composer Brian Field is raising awareness about climate change with his new solo piano work "Three Passions for our Tortured Planet." He has formed a collective by the same name, inviting musicians around the world to perform and record their own versions of the piece. All of them are united in taking a stand, knowing that when coming together they can make a difference.

In honor of Earth Day back on April 22nd, I sat down with Brian to discuss the music and the overall project. I look forward to sharing his future endeavors with you as well.
