In this session, RCM piano professor and Contemporary Piano Co-ordinator Andrew Zolinsky considers why it is absolutely crucial for performers to interact with contemporary music.

In presenting a new work for solo piano by RCM composer Alisa Zaika, Andrew will also be exploring the collaborative riches of composer/performer relationships.
