During my first visit to the Kaohsiung National Center for the Arts Weiwuying in March 2021, I was struck by the profound beauty and vibrant spirit of the space. Every detail, from the stunning building to the magnificent Klais Organ, embodied the very essence of art. The pioneering spirit of the artistic staff at Weiwuying was nothing short of inspiring, and it was their dedication and commitment that ultimately led to the creation of the CD you hold in your hands.
I would like to express my deep gratitude to everyone who contributed to the making of this CD. While my playing is featured on this recording, it is truly the result of the collective efforts of countless of talented individuals who poured their heart and soul into creating something meaningful and enduring. It is my sincere hope that this music brings you as much joy as it has brought me and that it serves as a tribute to the artistry and passion of all those involved.
Sincerely, Felix Hell
