"Serbian-born Canadian composer Ana Sokolović's fantastical, imaginary worlds are encapsulated in her internationally renowned, critically acclaimed operas, chamber music, instrumental, orchestral, and interarts works. The multi-award-winning, Montreal-based artist garnered the 2019 Juno award for Classical Composition of the Year for her Golden slumbers kiss your eyes, commissioned by the National Arts Centre Orchestra. Her newest full-length opera The Old Fools, with libretto by British author Paul Bentley, is due to receive its world premiere by the Canadian Opera Company in 2021. In a profile by Winnipeg composer and arts journalist Holly Harris, Sokolović shares her thoughts on composing, talks about her earliest musical roots, her life, her family, her fervent national pride, and her immigrant experience in her adopted country, which she now proudly calls home. In addition to the composer’s own reflections, key players in her career—Michael Cavanagh, Marie-Josée Chartier, Véronique Lacroix, Dáirine Ní Mheadhra, and Alexander Shelley—talk about their experience with her in collaborations fueled by her exuberant joie de vivre and passion for life."
