"This album offers us a rare treat in these straitened times: five symphonic works by a young woman who was recognized as 'composer of the year' by the Conseil québecois de la musique at its 1998 Opus Gala. She is truly a painter who has mastered all the subtle nuances and contrasts of the orchestral palette."

Le présent album nous offre un rare privilège en ces temps disette économique: cinq oeuvres symphoniques d'une femme jeune, déjà reconnue compositrice de l'année au Gala 1998 des prix Opus de Conseil québecois de la musique. Nous voice en présence d'un peintre authentique, quie maîtrise la palette orchestrale dans toutes ses subtilités et ses contrastes.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:

"Eternity ... exhibits Bouchard's colouristic skills as an orchestrator and the NAC Orchestra's equally impressive skills as an interpreter of the new. This is one of the finest Canadian albums of the season."
