If this piece of music had never been composed the lives of many people would have been fundamentally different.
ABOUT CANTO is an inventive mosaic about the dramatic influence that the modern classical piece Canto Ostinato, by Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, has had on the lives of a number of people. Like true love, music can bring about this radical change. This composition continues to do so.
