A Bridge Beyond

This recording features the guitar at its most traditional and its most experimental. One of Canada’s most sensitive and skillful interpreters of contemporary music, William Beauvais, has chosen a range of Canadian repertoire for solo guitar, guitar duets where he is joined by fellow guitarist Stephen Wingfield, and guitar with tape.

William Beauvais credits his formative influences to composer/guitarist Leo Brouwer who appeared frequently in Toronto between 1975 and 1985. Beauvais has consistently extended the boundaries of traditional guitar repertoire. He has worked with some of Canada’s finest musicians including the Canadian Chamber Ensemble, the Canadian Electronic Ensemble, the Evergreen Club Gamelan Ensemble, Tapestry Music Theatre and the Arraymusic Ensemble.

“For those who hope for more than fandangos and faux-Spanish fancies in contemporary music for the classical guitar, William Beauvais’ attractive selection of pieces by six living Canadian composers suggests a few alternatives.” – Elissa Poole, The Globe & Mail
