Beverly Johnston is one of Canada’s premier percussionists, a dynamic performer widely respected both as soloist and ensemble player in Canada and abroad. Her first Centrediscs recording, Impact, was nominated for a JUNO Award in 1987, and here in her second solo recording for the label, she continues to exhibit her prodigious musical talent in five evocative works by Canadian composers.
“Taken as a whole, the collection reflects both the richly diverse possibilities of solo percussion music and the remarkable prowess, sensitivity and precision of this musician in particular.”
– Roxanne Snider, Classical Music Magazine
“Johnston has that magical ability to produce genuine art where other people merely hit things, and some of Canada’s best composers know it.”
– Pauline Durichen, Kitchener-Waterloo Record
