Christina Petrowska Quilico Featured in CBC’s 10 Essential Works

10. Ann Southam: Glass Houses

Everyone should know some Canadian classical music, and Ann Southam‘s Glass Houses, a set of solo piano pieces composed in homage to minimalist composer Philip Glass, is the perfect introduction. Southam’s style of minimalism is more intricate and ornamented than her American counterpart’s. While the music is complex, it falls easily on the ear.

Pianist Christina Petrowska-Quilico has recorded the full work and, with the composer’s permission, released a revised version in 2011.
