Like many modern composers, Canadian Ann Southam began her career by writing neo-romantic works, but later moved towards a lyrical sort of atonal minimalism. After several years exploring the field of electronic music, Southam went the way of acoustic instruments with evocative works like her "Rivers" series for piano, which we sample tonight.
