The Best Contemporary Music albums of 2020

As the global reputation, reach, and repertoire of Montréal’s Quatuor Bozzini has grown over the last two decades, one thing that hasn’t changed is the peerless string quartet’s dedication to performing the work of composers from its Canadian homeland. The Serbian-born Ana Sokolović has lived in Québec since 1992, and this collection underlines her unique sensibility, deriving ideas from her engagement with theater, ballet, and folk music. The centerpiece of the album is her three-part Commedia dell’arte, with each three-movement work named for and inspired by different characters of the Italian theatrical tradition. Here, she privileges evocation provided by extended and percussive techniques over traditional structures.

Tortues vapeur (Steamed Turtles) is a digital release from Montréalers Susanna Hood and Martin Tétreault, who really are performance artists more than musicians. The sounds they produce are primarily of electroacoustic provenance. Although the six tracks are given titles, they provide no guidance to their content. Each is an amalgam of noise, rhythms, textures, voice and snippets of previously recorded material, creating a sound-garden to be tilled or left fallow as the listener chooses. So regardless of how this process is described, it’s certainly not for the faint of heart.
