Description:

Pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico performs Ann Southam's cycle Rivers (featured on Canadian Composer Portraits: Ann Southam, CMCCD 10505), as the gala concert in the competition.

American Record said of Ms. Petrowska Quilico's recording of the cycle: "Listening to it is something like listening to Bach, where the beauty is in the piece and the execution, not in the performer’s creative thought processes. The performer must simply execute in a very skillful and highly aesthetic way, what the composer wrote. Kudos to Christina Petrowska Quilico, piano professor at York University in Toronto, for doing exactly that.”
