Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ensemble Vivant, Catherine Wilson, piano; Sharon Lee, violin; Norman Hathaway, viola; and Sybil Herceg Shanahan, cello have been hailed as “Canada’s Chamber Music treasure” by the Toronto Star. Fête française from 2009 is just one of their highly collectible albums. In Fête française, an expanded Ensemble Vivant explores three appealing French pieces: Saint-Saëns' delightful Septet, Widor's Soirs d'Alsace and a Trio by the young Claude Debussy.
