This new CD is devoted entirely to the music of Jaques Hétu, one of today's most innovative writers of music. While covering a twenty-year period of Hétu's compositions, from 1979 to 1999, the disc explores some of his most dynamic writing, that for solo instruments and orchestra. Hétu is a wonderful thinker when it comes to his music. He gives priority to poetry, emotion and to coherent discourse; he is also sensitive to aspects of sonority and lyrical expression while remaining in traditional forms.

"While Hétu's is a conservative voice, these virtuosic and engaging works all stand as significant contributions to the modern Romantic repertoire."
- David Olds, Wholenote
