“Multiple JUNO Award–winner Malcolm Forsyth is one of Canada’s most performed, celebrated, and inspirational composers. His works were commissioned by iconic Canadian performers, who took them into their repertoires to perform across the country and internationally. His influence continues to be felt through the prominence and success of his former composition students. Reflections on Malcolm Forsyth provides an engaging introduction to and appraisal of his life, works, and career.”

Troy Ducharme, Don Wright Faculty of Music, Western University


“Through musical analysis, personal reminiscences, and contextualizing essays, the contributors introduce the reader to Malcolm Forsyth as a complete figure—an immigrant to Canada, a husband, father, friend, mentor, and collaborator, and a significant contemporary Canadian composer.”

Dr. Marion MacLeod
