Rising pianist Claudia TAO is excited to announce the upcoming release of her debut solo piano album, “Nirvana,” set to launch this May. The album will be widely available, gracing over 150 digital platforms including favorites like Apple Music and Spotify. A Canadian resident with roots in China and musical training from France, Claudia brings a rich blend of cultural influences to her performances, breaking the mold of traditional classical music.

‘Nirvana’ promises to enrich the contemporary classical music scene with its 50-minute journey showcasing Philip Glass’s compositions. Reinterpreted through Claudia’s innovative lens, the album offers a deeply engaging listening experience.

The album kicks off with ‘Opening’ and features key pieces from Philip Glass’s famous opera trilogy—’Einstein on the Beach,’ ‘Satyagraha,’ and ‘Akhnaten.’ These operas explore varied themes, from science to spirituality, showcasing Claudia’s ability to honor classical traditions while introducing her own creative flair.

Claudia’s “Nirvana” not only showcases her prowess on the piano but also highlights her commitment to pushing creative boundaries. In pieces like “An Unwelcome Friend,” “The Poet Acts,” and “Why Does Someone Have to Die,” inspired by the film “The Hours,” Claudia captures the essence of female identity and humanity’s brilliance through her interpretations.

Significantly, the album concludes with “Closing,” mirroring the structure of Glass’s “Glassworks,” emphasizing a recurring narrative that resonates with the album’s theme of eternal recurrence and spiritual awakening.

Claudia’s artistic ventures are not confined to music alone. Her collaboration with artificial intelligence for the album’s visual aspects underscores her engagement with new media, echoing the blurred lines between reality and digital worlds. The album cover, conceived by Claudia and generated through AI, reflects this dynamic interaction.

Besides her approach to innovation, Claudia’s album “Nirvana” is a testament to her research into Philip Glass’s work, aiming to challenge prevailing stereotypes and illuminate the essence of his musical spirit. This project is not just about displaying technical skill but about making classical music accessible and relevant across various modern contexts.

Fans and new listeners alike are encouraged to experience “Nirvana” upon its release this May, where Claudia promises a transformative listening experience that bridges the past with the contemporary, the spiritual with the material, all while fostering a profound connection with audiences worldwide.
