Barbara shares more than thirty piano miniatures from her Variations project. This intriguing selection, spanning twenty-eight years, is all Canadian and will include some brand new works hot off the press.
There are other projects hatching, too. Stay tuned for more details about a recital with cellist Norm Adams, a new opera (for Barbara and Janice Jackson) by Marie Pelletier, as well as the rest of Newfangled's new season, and another presentation of Barbara's Variations project. Whew!
