Land of Living Skies

“It is with great pleasure that we have worked on this compact disc of Canadian reed trios. This formation of instruments (oboe, clarinet and bassoon) is almost never presented in concert and the composers of today rarely think about writing for it. The five works on this disc were written for the members of the reed trio which belongs to the Estria Woodwind Quintet. Each of these works has been written in a personal style which highlights different qualities of the reed trio and gives a fresh perspective to the ear. More homogeneous than the woodwind quintet, the reed trio is full of possibilities and the five composers on this disc have explored and even further developed many of these possibilities. We wish you a very pleasant listening experience!” – Étienne de Médicis, Pauline Farrugia and Michel Bettez
