"Ancient Gardens" is Colleen's second solo CD. It showcases an array of rarely-recorded music by Brazilian, French, Spanish and Canadian composers. Colleen combines her keen desire to travel to exotic places with a zealous interest in exposing Canadian music to new audiences. This has led her to perform in such countries as India, Japan, Thailand, Guam, Hong Kong and Morocco, as well as in the USA. Affirmed by the critics as a major exponent of classical music in Canada, Colleen has developed a reputation for great musicality, sensitivity, fluidity of style and dazzling brilliance of colour in her playing.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:

"The artist has talent and musicality and plays with feeling."

- Times of India, Bombay

"At breakneck speeds, Athparia's crisp articulation of the note-heavy piano writing (in the Mendelssohn D Minor Trio) was simply astonishing."

- Calgary Herald, Alberta

"Pianist Colleen Athparia, a major exponent of contemporary Canadian music, gives a clear and compelling performance."

- International Alliance for Women in Music
