The 12-minute piece named ‘Corona’ is composed of three movements: ‘Assault’, ‘Death’, and ‘Life.’
“I have been staying at home these days to protect myself and my other citizens from the new virus, and try to spend time in the best way possible,” he said.
“The first step to fight the coronavirus is to observe all the health tips to get rid of this new disease soon, but as long as this situation continues we should try to do our best, if we are an artist or a musician, we need to work harder and if not we need to increase our personal information,” he noted.
“I have been working more than before. I watch films and listen to music, because I believe music is one of the best ways to help people in confronting a crisis,” he added.
