Christina Petrowska-Quilico named as one of the top 25 classical pianists

Contemporary music demands a particularly extraordinary sort of musician: one who can meet the ever-mounting technical demands imposed by today’s composers, and who is willing to try things that have never been done before. Christina Petrowska-Quilico is one of those musicians — possibly the most respected one in Canada. Many of the greatest Canadian composers of recent times — Ann Southam, Violet Archer, John Weinzweig — have Petrowska-Quilico to thank for bringing their music to our ears. — M.P.
