The paradigm of classical piano states: “For a pianist to become successful, one has to stay within the boundaries of the classical form itself.” In the case of Elizabeth Spano, the artist transforms classical music into a new sound of elegance and deep tones of ‘modern’ classical music along with the influences of latter-day composers such as her main influence – Johann Sebastian Bach and Beethoven.

Elizabeth Spano’s favourite quote comes from one of the greatest representatives of Romanticism in Russian classical music – Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff who once said: “The new kind of music seems to create not from the heart but from the head. Its composers think rather than feel. They have not the capacity to make their works exalt – they meditate, protest, analyze, reason, calculate and brood, but they do not exalt.”

As a young child, Elizabeth Spano began to play the piano and quickly became recognized as a child prodigy. At the age of 11, she attended the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music. An alumna of York University, Elizabeth Spano excelled to a level equal to that of today’s modern-day composers.
