Burge Plays Burge

Canadian composer John Burge will present a solo piano recital of his own piano music featuring a complete performance of his TWENTY-FOUR PRELUDES for solo piano. Utilizing all 24 major and minor keys in the arrangement used by Chopin, eight of Burge's Preludes make use of extended instrumental techniques but always in a very tonal setting. A Juno-winning composer, Burge holds the distinction as the longest serving President of the Canadian League of Composers (1998-2006) and is currently a board member of the SOCAN Foundation.
