Chilly Gonzales is the Grammy-winning Canadian composer and pianist who's known for making instrumental piano sound really modern. His upcoming album Solo Piano III will be out this fall and Gonzales has dedicated each song to someone specific, whether that's aviator Amelia Earhart, comedian Eric Andre or even Romanian gymnast Nadia Comăneci.

In this q broadcast premiere, Gonzales shares his song Blizzard in B Flat Minor and explains why he's dedicated it to the bullfighter Conchita Cintrón.
