Canadian Composers Portraits

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.


« This is intensely pleasant music. » – John Story, Fanfare (USA)

« The second disc, containing the five orchestral works, demonstrates highly professional production values and top quality performances by major Canadian orchestras. […] The legacy of Murray Adaskin is very large, spanning over five decades and myriad genres, including orchestral music, chamber music, choral music, and opera. This Canadian Composers Portraits CD provides a fascinating glimpse into his life through his own words, and several convincing performances of some of his works. For the documentary alone, the recording is worth owning. » – Brian E. Power, CAML Review
