Mother Daughter Duo | Episode 18
Rebecca and Zara are joined by another mother-daughter musical duo in this week’s episode! Patricia Ahern is a baroque violinist who plays with the world-renowned, Toronto based orchestra, Tafelmusik. Her daughter, Liliana Mahave, is a music major in the Claude Watson Arts Program at Earl Haig Secondary School and is already making a name for herself as a composer. Liliana shares her compositional process from early childhood to now. (She has come a long way from writing piano pieces about elephants and caterpillars!) While Patricia gives advice to all the musicians raising musicians.
Liliana’s award-winning composition for piano trio, Baile Diabólica de Tontín will be premiered by the Bedford Trio on March 19th, tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/immersed-tickets-184993489507
