Lost and Found is Peter-Anthony Togni and Jeff Reilly’s collection of compositions inspired by subjects ranging from the power of dreams, the birth of children and grandchildren, the natural world and medieval plainchant. Composed both individually and collectively over a two-year period, this new album reflects the sum total of their shared musical experience.
Peter-Anthony Togni and Jeff Reilly have toured the world with the trio Sanctuary, recorded concertos for bass clarinet and choir on the German label ECM, string orchestra concertos on Warner Classics and full length works for solo bass clarinet and vocal quartet on the Montreal based label ATMA Classique. Between them they have received 4 Juno nominations. In their duo Blackwood Togni and Reilly freely explore everything from ancient modality to free jazz to contemporary classical, sharing with their listeners the sum total of their collective musical experience.
