Christine Donkin - Album of Old Photographs
Performers: SHHH!! Ensemble (Edana Higham, piano; Zac Pulak, percussion)
Recorded at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Rolston Recital Hall during a three week residency from November 26th to December 15th.
"This is a set of short pieces written mostly in a romantic style. The prelude begins in a contemporary (although tonal) harmonic language and gradually carries the listener back in time to a more romantic tonality. The 'photographs' hint at a possible story connecting the different images, but these connections are intentionally ambiguous. During the postlude, the harmony gradually shifts back to a contemporary style to finish the composition as it began."
