Victoria-based Aventa Ensemble provides an intense program of works by the esteemed Quebec composer Gilles Tremblay, featuring pianist Louise Bessette in the World premiere recording of the composer’s piano concerto Envoi. As well, the two other works – Le signe du lion and Solstices – mark the first commercial release of these pieces since the era of vinyl recordings.

"No matter how intellectual the premise, there is a seductive transparency to Gilles Tremblay's music that charms, and Tremblay's infallible ear for colour rarely denies even the simplest gesture its sensuous potential."

Elissa Poole, The Globe and Mail
