The Hope piano compilation album was born of an idea to bring together 12 well-established pianists from across the globe and spread a message of hope through their music, each in his own way.

The pianists in this project are from across the globe: USA, EU, UK, Austria and Asia. Brought to life by Project Kronos and the label Silent Beat Records in spring 2021.
