To make room for the best of the wealth of material received over the holiday break and to accommodate the addition of three wonderful new reviewers to our fold, I find I have left insufficient space for my own musings this month. So let me just take a moment to introduce to these pages pianist and pedagogue Christina Petrowska Quilico who shares insights on a new release by her colleague Stephen Hough; composer and tuba virtuoso J. Scott Irvine who opines on a CD of contemporary tuba and euphonium repertoire from Deanna Swoboda; and my own chamber music coach and mentor, violinist Ivana Popovich who gives us her take on the Tokyo Quartet’s recent Schubert release. Welcome aboard to one and all!

We welcome your feedback and invite submissions. CDs and comments should be sent to: The WholeNote, 503 – 720 Bathurst St. Toronto ON M5S 2R4. We also encourage you to visit our website where you can find added features including direct links to performers, composers and record labels, “buy buttons” for on-line shopping and additional, expanded and archival reviews.
