February 4, Ann Southam (1937-2010)

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I may not post.  On with today’s composer.

Ann Southam was a Canadian composer who lived in Toronto and worked closely with the New Dance Group of Canada (later known as Toronto Dance Theatre).  These four selections show the breadth of her work from simple piano, to minimalism to 12 tone.

  1. Never heard her work before. Quite some breadth there.
