Notes and Editorial Reviews

Maurice Journeau (1898-1999) was a French composer whose chamber music writing was inspired in part by chamber music concerts he attended while he was a child. For the majority of his life, he lived as an independent composer, outside of the mainstream music circles. When he was 94 years old, artists discovered his music, and immediately began performing his works in their concerts.

The ensemble Opus 41 offers us an encompassing sample of the composer’s music. Opus 41 consists of a flexible instrumentation. Artists include Francois Goic, Sylvie Dupont, Nathalie Charmoy, Sara Quatrehomme, Cecile Clouet, Ghislain Faure, and Cathy Cousin.
