ATMA Classique presents an evocative musical portrait of Canadian composer Ana Sokolovic. This new recording features the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal, soprano Florie Valiquette, mezzo-soprano Krisztina Szabó, and vocal ensemble Queen of Puddings Music Theatre. The human voice is at the heart of Sokolovic’s work, so that it is fitting that her vocal works Sirens, Tanzer Lieder and Pesma are featured on this ATMA debut recording. Evta, a concerto for violin and ensemble, is included and features Andréa Tyniec as soloist. An important figure in contemporary music, Ana Sokolovic has distinguished herself in Canada and internationally. She is known for many prestigious collaborations with Canadian orchestras, leading artists on the international music scene, and several Quebec chamber music ensembles.
