School of Music instructor Marjan Mozetich is the 2010 winner of a Juno—Canada’s biggest music award—in the classical composition of the year category.
“This is fabulous news. Marjan is one of Canada’s most performed Canadian composers of classical music, and his Juno is most deserved,” says Professor John Burge, associate director of the School, who won a Juno in the same category last year. “The award recognizes the superb recording that the Penderecki String Quartet made of Marjan’s work, ‘Lament in the Trampled Garden’— a beautifully evocative piece that is richly lyrical and dramatic.”
Mozetich’s Juno-winning recording is on a CD devoted entirely to the composer’s chamber music, which was released on the Centrediscs label and distributed by the Canadian Music Centre.
