Eve Egoyan

Eve Egoyan is a pianist, an artist whose medium is the piano. Her performances encompass extremely contrasting sensibilities: from Alvin Curran’s five-hour long Inner Cities to Erik Satie’s miniatures; from minimalist Simple Lines of Enquiry by Ann Southam to maximalist new complexity works by Michael Finnissy; from the barely audible to roaring overtone-filled resonances; from the rigorous interpretation of a score to free improvisation. Egoyan also explores other art forms and technologies in relation to the piano. She has recorded eleven solo CDs which have received many accolades including “Best Classical” The Globe and Mail (1999) for her first solo CD, and more recently one of “Ten Top” classical discs, New Yorker magazine (2009), and “Top Classical Disc of the Year”, The Globe and Mail (2011) – all for contemporary solo piano repertoire. Her most recent disc is Thought and Desire music by Linda Catlin Smith.
