This recording is part of the Centrediscs’ Canadian Composers Portraits series which documents the emergence of a generation of pioneering professional composers who firmly established Canada’s place on the world’s musical map. Each release in this retrospective of the last fifty years is dedicated to a single composer and uniquely combines full-length documentaries on the composers’ lives and music, as well as a selection of their most important works.

Nominated for a 2009 Lauréats Prix OPUS: Recording of the Year

« Altogether, this disc is a treat, for those who are steadfast admirers of new music and for those wishing only to expose the ears to something different. »
