Notes & Reviews:

Both 15 for Piano and Form Archimage rank among the relatively few major and challenging Canadian works for contemporary piano. Showcasing performer and composer, the pendulum of extremes swings far and wide within the eclectic collection of movements included on this CD. Vivid, disparate inspirations and imaginings emerge in contrasting musical expressions that range from incidental, technical strategies, to various programmatic reflections on conceptual, visual and mythological impressions, and to longer narratives based on more complex sub-structures of compounding patterns and processes. And while some movements take the performer to the volatile, precarious edges of endurance and roaring virtuosity, others counter quietly within atmospheric pastels of fleeting tranquility and shadowy murmurings. 15 for Piano was co-commissioned through the Canada Council for the Arts by Roger Admiral, Winston Choi, Douglas Finch, Corey Hamm and Kyoko Hashimoto. Roger Admiral, a well-known champion of 20th century and contemporary repertoire, has performed and recorded many of Howard Bashaw's works. Produced in direct collaboration with the composer, this premiere recording of 15 for Piano is also the first commercial recording made using the Canadian Music Centre's new and impressive Steingraeber & Söhne piano, located in the concert space of the CMC's National Office in Toronto, Ontario.
