We hope you enjoy this edition of SoundStories, with a deep dive into Ana Sokolović, recent Juno award winner for the classical composition of the year.

Composer Spotlight: Ana Sokolović

Composer Ana Sokolović was born in Belgrade and is now a professor of composition at the Université de Montréal, where she previously studied under José Evangelista. Her work, often influenced by Balkan asymmetric rhythms, is both rich and playful.
