If you missed the interview last week with Juno Award winning composer Christos Hatzis, you can listen to the whole conversation here.

With a large number of presentations of his music in Canada, USA, Europe, and elsewhere every year, a continuous stream of commissions by an international list of soloists and ensembles and several recording projects by major and independent labels, 2008 and 2006 Juno Award winner Christos Hatzis is currently enjoying a growing international reputation as one of the most important composers writing today (CBC Records). A professor of composition at the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, Hatzis is the recipient of several national & international awards, including 2 Juno Awards, the Prix Italia Special Prize, Prix Bohemia Radio and most recently the Hellenic Heritage Foundation of Canada Lifetime Achievement Award. His discs are available on EMI Classics, Sony Classical, Analekta, CBC Records, Marquis, Centrediscs, Naxos and other labels.

Michael was speaking to Christos about his musical background, other worldly influences and his new Flute Concerto CD on Naxos.
