Notes and Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed as 'the Glenn Gould of contemporary music,' pianist Marc Couroux is one of Canada's leading interpreters of 20th-century music. Always interested in trying to determine the nature of the 'Canadian being ,' Mr. Couroux has chosen here to record works by four composers who 'dare to allege, to dream aloud, to make the riskiest of statements linking art and Canadian culture, which by their very nature reveal more about the complexity and the irreducibility of human experience and Canadian experience, than most have done before them.' http://pages.infinit.net/kore/couroux.html Acclaimed as 'the Glenn Gould of contemporary music,' pianist Marc Couroux is one of Canada's leading interpreters of 20th-century music.
