Walter’s Mixed Bag is a journey through the imagination of one of Canada’s most outrageously bold composers, Walter Boudreau. Born in 1947, the prolific composer and conductor has composed more than fifty works that have been performed in Canada, the United States, and Europe. This deeply personal portrait includes a five-minute capsule of the history of music (Le Récital), a fifteen-minute account of the earth’s genesis performed by eight percussionists (Les Sept Jours), and excerpts from L’Asile de la pureté, a work completed in 2003. La Vie d’un héros is an epic tribute to his friend, composer Claude Vivier, whose tragic death in 1983 profoundly affected him.
