Our verdict is in: This was the year’s best music

# 1. Ann Southam: RETURNINGS
Eve Egoyan, piano
So different from the joyful minimalism of her earlier music, the late Ann Southam’s final works for piano, written for Eve Egoyan, are spare and haunting, inhabiting a circumscribed world where the expressive resonance of even the simplest musical element is questioned, and where resolution is always possible but rarely permanent.
