Catherine Wilson, piano
This CD was recorded in honour of the 20th Anniversary of the international release of Ensemble Vivant’s first recording. Ensemble Vivant was a pioneer among classical piano chamber ensembles championing a rich genre-diverse repertoire ranging from classical to Latin and other jazz related styles, as well as uncovering rarely heard but deserving works from these diverse genres. The group also presents new works that were written for them by leading composers in the classical and jazz genres.
“Pianist Catherine Wilson and her collaborators achieve that all-too-rare balance between intellectual satisfaction and pure entertainment…this is a quality musical candy box.”
– John Terauds, Toronto Star
