One of Canada’s leading pianists, Dr. Réa Beaumont is respected interpreter of 20th-century and Canadian music whose compelling interpretations are delivered with a rich palette of tone color and a powerful technical command. Frequently described as “beautiful” (American Public Media), Réa's performances and recordings have been broadcast in 13 countries and she has premiered over 50 works in collaboration with leading composers, most recently R. Murray Schafer.
Following concerts in Canada and Europe, Réa has just released the world premiere recording of R. Murray Schafer's newest work, in collaboration with violinist Stephen Sitarski, Concertmaster of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. The piece received its first broadcast this October on CBC Radio 2.
