A milestone in Canadian piano music!
Over 90 Canadian compositions for the first time ever on record.

Gala Records is proud to announce the release of

Sounds of North: Two Centuries 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.

Canadian pianist Elaine Keillor takes the listener on a unique journey through compositions written between 1807 and 2010.

The piano pieces presented on these four CDs show how composers moved beyond just giving a 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.

Available in record stores on May, 9, 2012.
