Soliloquy

LIMITED EDITION 45 rpm 7″ vinyl (includes a digital download card)
Soliloquy delivers a snapshot of the Canadian piano miniature. This new release from pianist/composer Adam Sherkin reflects the intimate and the contemporary through sound worlds that are unique to Canada. All five tracks presented are world premiere recordings: an early Prelude by distinguished Canadian Jacques Hétu and a neoclassical Invention abuzz with new world counterpoint by Colin McPhee. Adam Sherkin’s own set of three Meditations, {Book II} offer affectionate musical dedications: 1) Midsummer Ballad, written for a childhood friends’ wedding; 2) Soliloquy, written for a close friend’s 30th birthday and; 3) Scotch & Happiness, inspired by verses containing an irrepressible dose of parental life advice.
