Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sounds of North - A comprehensive anthology of Canadian piano music European-based musical genres have been created in Canada for over three hundred years. Gradually Canadian composers have developed a sense of place in their musical creations. Celebrated concert pianist and connoisseur of Canadian musical heritage, Elaine Keillor takes the listener on a unique journey through compositions written between 1807 and 2010 including, for the first time on record, works by women composers and contemporary composers like Glenn Gould. A unique and comprehensive portrait of Canadian music engineered by award-winning EMI alumnus Anton Kwiatowski. The piano pieces presented on these four CDs show how composers moved beyond just giving a Read more Canadian-influenced title to their composition. In different ways they allowed the space of their Canadian region to seep into their approach to organizing sounds and wrestled with the great myth of Canada as North. *Over 90 Canadian compositions for the first time ever on record.
