Composers Edition are proud to be welcome Canadian-based New Yorker Linda Catlin Smith..
Drawn to an ambiguity of harmony and narrative, Linda Catlin Smith’s work is informed by her deep appreciation of the work of writers and painters such as Virginia Woolf, Cormac McCarthy, Cy Twombly, Giorgio Morandi, Mark Rothko, Agnes Martin, and Joseph Cornell among many others. Her works have been commissioned and performed by many soloists and ensembles in Canada, the US and abroad, including: Victoria, Vancouver and Kitchener-Waterloo Symphonies, Tectonics Festival, Huddersfield Festival, Tapestry New Opera Works, Arraymusic, Vancouver New Music, Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Evergreen Club Gamelan, Bozzini, Del Sol and Penderecki Quartets, Fibonacci Trio, Duke Trio, Sabat/Clarke Duo, and many soloists including Eve Egoyan, Anton Lukoszevieze, Louis Goldstein, Elinor Frey, Philip Thomas, Heather Roche and others. Her works have been recorded by: Another Timbre, World Edition, Arraymusic, Eve Egoyan, Evergreen Club Gamelan, Barbara Pritchard, Les Coucous Bénévoles, RocKeys duo. Her lecture “Composing Identity: What is a Woman Composer?” is published in Descant Magazine (#107) and Musicworks (#80).
