In spring 2020 the coronavirus began to spread throughout the world and in many places people were subjected to quarantine. It was then that the Japanese violist Hiyoli Togawa proposed to the record label BIS to release a viola disc entitled Songs of Solitude of short pieces by different contemporary composers as a reflection of the present time and offering comfort to listeners in their solitude.
