Spatium - Released 2011



Peter-Anthony Togni / piano
Peter-Anthony’s music is kaleidoscopic in nature – deeply rooted in spirituality and contemplative, yet energetic and explosive, it travels from the somber to the ethereal. With diverse contemporary soundscapes built from choral, jazz and instrumental palettes, Togni explores the limits of listeners’ expectations – both fulfilling them and shattering them. Togni has been heard everywhere from Toronto’s Roy Thompson Hall, the Moscow Conservatory, the Oriental Arts Centre in Shanghai, to the Vatican in Rome for His Holiness Pope John Paul II. His music is broadcast regularly in Canada on the CBC, as well as internationally. Togni’s works have been released on XXI Records, CBC Records, Hänssler Classics, Warner Classics UK. In 2010 his Lamentatio Jeremiah Prophetae, was recorded by bass clarinettist Jeff Reilly and the Elmer Iseler Singers for ECM records. In October of 2012 the Togni Trio’s latest recording Spatium was released. Peter-Anthony is also organist for the internationally acclaimed trio Sanctuary and his jazz group the Togni Trio plays regularly through Canada and the US. He is also a well-known broadcaster on CBC Radio 2 and is currently the host of Choral Concert. In 2012, Peter-Anthony was the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in honour of contributions made to Canadian community life. He currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
