Massey Hall presents
One of the rare women in the neoclassical world, Alexandra Stréliski is hardly a conventional pianist. Hailing from a classical background yet free-spirited, she creates music that enthralls listeners, filling their minds with rich, cinematic images.
INSCAPE, her last opus out in 2018, is a commercial and critical success since its release. The album has more than 78 million streams worldwide, and went gold in Canada, where more than 71,000 albums were sold. Stréliski has won the Félix in the Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Instrumental Album of the Year categories, after garnering seven nominations at the Gala de L’ADISQ. INSCAPE held on to the #1 spot of the Quebec sales charts for 5 weeks, it won the Album of the Year award at the Independent Music Awards, and it was included on the Long List of the 2019 Polaris Music Prize.
Billboard called Stréliski "one of the foremost new stars in modern classical" and Noisey stated that "her music is a contrast of depth and fragility that uncannily resembles the human condition itself."
This is a 19+ event.
