Music of Constantine Caravassilis with guest Christina Petrowska Quilico

Today's show looks at the piano music of Canadian composer Constantine Caravassilis, ten pieces in a cycle of five Rhapsodies and five Fantasias collected together. These dramatic and beautiful pieces in the words of Caravassilis: "The unifying thread amidst all of these works is my continuous search for beauty as well as the exhilarating joy I feel when I seek meaning in experiences beyond those found in everyday life." We are joined by the pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico who premiered and recorded this music.

Postcard from Smyrna was inspired by Middle Eastern music and specifically an improvised, instrumental Taqsim in Hijaz mode. The result is a gorgeous piano piece which is much closer to its source material than Romanticized Eastern music of the 19th century.
