2008 Olympic Games with Piano Music by Lera Auerbach

The Japanese record company King Records will release a CD with adaptations of national anthems for piano commissioned from various composers – just in time for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Lera Auerbach selected the Indian anthem, which is based on the poem “Jana Gana Mana” by Rabindranath Tagore, and gave her piano work the title “Tagore’s Fantasia.”
