Notes and Editorial Reviews

Winner of the 2010 JUNO award for classical album of the year - Large Ensemble!

Three musical giants including two early works with a Mozart influence come together on this recording. It is also a meeting of great performers including pianist Alain Lefevre, violinist David Lefevre and trumpeter Paul Archibald joined by the London Mozart Players conducted by Matthias Bamert. Recorded in London in the winter of 2009, this album will fill the collector’s quest for discoveries with works never or rarely recorded.
