CBC Interview Feb 4th, 2016

I spoke today on CBC radio with the very wonderful and energized Matt Rainnie about going to PEI to conduct the orchestra, my recent JUNO nomination, and about the various aspects of music and music-making that keep me excited:

2016 JUNO Nomination

I’m thrilled to have received a JUNO nomination (‘Classical Composition of the Year 2016’) for my ‘Two Pop Songs on Antique Poems’, written for the fabulous Afiara String Quartet. The SPIN CYCLE 2-disc album (label: Centrediscs/Naxos) has itself been nominated in the category of ‘Instrumental Album of the Year’, and I would like to congratulate the whole team of creative and production talent. You are such wonderful, vibrant and talented people!

The iTunes link to the whole album is here.
