About the album:
Carissa Klopoushak and Philip Chiu have performed extensively together. Their musical partnership has taken them across the country, beginning with a 17-city Canadian tour for the Eckhardt-Grammatté Competition Winner’s Tour in 2009. Since that time, they have performed together in many recitals and chamber music collaborations across Canada, appearing at Ottawa Chamberfest, Ritornello Chamber Music Festival, and touring the Maritime provinces for Debut Atlantic. Their 2016 recording SOUNDWORLDS presents some of their favourite works from their many tours together, capturing their explorations of many different characters and soundworlds.
The album features three sonatas for violin and piano by Leoš Janáček, Claude Debussy, and Healey Willan, written within three years of one another, each offering a unique perspective on the First World War. Completing the album are two shorter works by Claude Vivier and T. Patrick Carrabré (world premiere recording).
