ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nick Peros is an acclaimed classical composer with almost 200 works in his catalogue composed across a wide variety of genres, including solo instrumental, chamber, orchestral, choral and vocal works.

His music has been performed across Canada, the US & Europe, and his music concerts have been recorded by CBC Radio for national broadcast.

He has released two CD’s of his music – "Motets", featuring 20 a cappella choral compositions; "Songs", featuring 31 songs for voice & piano. Both of these CD’s have received wide critical and audience acclaim, as well as receiving excellent support on classical radio across North America. His music has also been recorded by Canadian pianist Linda Shumas, who featured five of Nick’s Poemes for Solo Piano on her CD "Paradise Reborn".

In 1992, Nick Peros’ project "Isumataq", a collaboration with Canadian painter Ken Kirkby, was recognized by the Government of Canada at a special closed ceremony in the House of Commons/Ottawa, attended by the Members of the House, the Party Leaders, the Speaker of the House and the Prime Minister, as a project important for Canada and for Canadian culture.

Nick Peros composed the large-scale a capella choral work "Prayer of Consolation" to commemorate the First Anniversary of 9-11. The work is a setting of Scripture that addresses the events of 9-11 and received its World Premiere on September 10, 2002 at Washington National Cathedral, Washington DC as a key component in the official US state commemorations of 9-11. "Prayer of Consolation" received worldwide media attention from press, radio & TV.

The CD "Songs", by Nick Peros, features 31 songs for solo voice and piano and are works characterized by a beautiful melodic sense as well as rich harmonic invention. The texts feature poetry by Emily Bronte, Emily Dickinson, A. E. Housman, William Blake, Wordsworth, et al - some of the Bronte songs are the first time that those texts have been set to music.

As a producer, Nick Peros has also been awarded a Platinum Award for his CD "O Canada- A Canadian Celebration" (Certified Platinum), while three other CD’s – "Home for Christmas", "Homegrown" and "Stories from Home" have all achieved Gold Record status.
