The Topaz Duo getting ready to release their debut album

In August 2021, we finished recording our debut album lumena at the Beaches Presbyterian Church in Toronto.

We recorded 4 beautiful works by living composers: Riho Esko Maimets, Marjan Mozetich, Lowell Liebermann, and a brand new work that we commissioned by Kevin Lau.

We are so grateful to our recording engineer, Peter Gemmell, the Beaches Presbyterian Church, our videographer who documented our sessions, Alison Gray.

We also are grateful to Robert Grant, who funded the commission by Kevin Lau, and to the generous support of FACTOR and Ontario Arts Council who made this all possible.

Our album will be released March 2022! Stay tuned!!
