With two recent Juno awards and a SOCAN Award to his credit and a slew of new commissions by internationally recognized touring artists such as violinists Angèle Dubeau, Hilary Hahn and Jennifer Koh, percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, soprano Suzie Leblanc, the Pacifica Quartet and Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra among others and an opera collaboration with renowned author Margaret Atwood, Christos Hatzis is widely recognized as “one of the most important composers writing today” (CBC), “a contemporary Canadian Master” (the New Yorker) and “a Canadian icon and an international cultural institution” (See Magazine). An unusually large number of performances and CD recordings of his music for EMI, Analekta, Sony, CBC, Naxos and other major and independent labels as well wide internet distribution of his audio playlist (over one million hits since 2008) have garnered a loyal international following for his music which is growing exponentially every year. Hatzis’ music is influenced by early Christian spirituality, Pythagorean and Hermetic ideas, his own Byzantine music heritage, world cultures and religions, and various classical, jazz and pop music idioms from the past and present. He is a believer in borderless culture and the uninhibited flow of cultural information. A professor of composition at the University of Toronto, Hatzis writes extensively on these and other related subjects. His writings, audio playlists and other information about the composer are available at hatzis.com



Christos Hatzis’ music is published by Promethean Editions, based in Wellington, New Zealand.
