What Goes Around is a minimalist chamber music album by Canadian composer Frank Horvat. Re-defining what minimalism means in the 21st century, five of the works were composed to create a captivating energy by re-creating a highly layered looping effect, associated with electronic music, with only the use of a single acoustic instrument or family of instruments in each piece.
Described as “one of the most inventive songwriters to come out of the contemporary scene in Canada” (WholeNote Magazine), this is composer Frank Horvat’s tenth studio album. Characterized as “poignant”, his last album earned a four star review in BBC Music Magazine and was declared an “ultimately timeless album” by Klassik Magazine.
His music has been premiered on four continents and featured in theatre, films, and on TV and radio networks internationally. Artivism plays an important role in his musical output. He has spearheaded projects such as the international #music4HRDs social media campaign, the Green Keys Tour, and Piano Therapy Concerts.
Percussionist Beverley Johnston, clarinetist Peter Stoll, and harpist Sharlene Wallace join Frank Horvat in performing the mesmerizing ‘solo’ pieces that comprise this new album. Each performer is a leading instrumentalist in their field, intent on interpreting great new contemporary works.
