First Play: Canadian Art Song Project, Ash Roses

March 4, 2014
National

"The members of the Canadian Art Song Project believe strongly in preserving and promoting this country’s native music. Led by tenor Lawrence Wiliford and pianist Steven Philcox, they’ve commissioned seven new works since forming in 2011.

In their first recording, they focus on pre-existing songs by Derek Holman, including The Four Seasons, which is dedicated to Holman’s late friend Richard Bradshaw, and a setting of Tricia Postle’s Ash Roses.

The Canadian Art Song Project officially launches Ash Roses this week on the Centrediscs label at the Canadian Music Centre in Toronto..."
