NY medics take time out to play Bach with the prosmain
Meet the Camerata Notturna, an orchestra of healthcare professionals who have spent the last four months on the Covid frontline.
They are joined in the Bach double concerto by soloists Cho-Liang Lin and David Chan, who is also Camerata’s music director.
Steve Cho tells us it’s all in the wider music family:
‘There are some interesting music industry connections. Violist Yeou-Cheng Ma is the older sister of Yo-Yo, and director of the Children’s Orchestra Society. Wells Andres, younger brother of pianist Timo, plays violin. Lisa Wong, violist, is Director of the Arts and Humanities Initiative at Harvard Medical School, and the wife of violinist Lynn Chang. My own wife, associate chief of the NYU-Langone Emergency Department, who has not had a day off work since January beause of the pandemic, somehow still found time to prepare and record the harpsichord part!’
Well done, all!
