Canadian composer and violinist Alexandra Stréliski has signed with XXIM Records/Sony Masterworks. In a media release, the company described her as “a trailblazing woman in the modern classical world,” and said that her “emotionally striking music has enthralled listeners the world over.”
We first wrote about the Montrealer in 2018, after the release of her breathtaking album Inscape. Her work has been featured prominently in both movies and television. She collaborated multiple times with the late filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée.
A new album is scheduled for release in the spring. We got a small taste in the form of “The Hills” on Friday.
