Album review: Glass Houses

From: Toronto, Canada

Genre: Classical

Post- humus release from Canadian composer Ann Southam, principle piano performer: Christina Petrowska Quilico.

Bright and cheery piano composition that would test on pianists playing ability. Whirling melodies and quick and nimble progressions – a complex album that is a testament to the talent of the performer, Christina Petrowska Quilico, as well as the composer.

Quick compositions that, one first listen, are strongly influenced by the romantic period and have a traditional classical structure. The complexity is soon evident though, and Southam’s compositions speak for themselves within a few tracks. Her remarkable talent as a composer shows itself and issues a challenge to any musician with a desire to prove their skill. The layers of complexity keep the mind active and attentive.
