Over seventy minutes of dynamic orchestra sound is here presented for the enjoyment of the avid new music listener. Taken from the "Musique Actuelle" series of CBC Radio-Canada broadcasts, these are inspired and rich performances of works by three of Québec's foremost contemporary composers.

"All three compositions are striking works full of interesting individual ideas, all organized with the rhapsodic, ad hoc structure of a tone poem. An exceptionally interesting disc, very well recorded."
- Stevenson Classical Disc Guide

"There is some exceptional music here for listeners who will accept free-form musical associations."
- Stephen Ellis, Fanfare

"The Orchestre Métropolitain conducted Walter Boudreau display zest and vigour in their performance of works by more 'experimental' figures of the recent generation of Canadian composers - works at the stylistic vanguard."
- Malcolm Miller, Tempo (U.K.)

"Qualité des oeuvres, qualité des exécutions, qualité de la réception de la part d'une salle comble: ce soir-là, tous les éléments s'étaient conjugués pour créer un événement mémorable, événement qu'on peut revivre maintenant grâce à l'excellent enregistrment qui fut réalisé immédiatement après le concert."
- Claude Gingras, La Presse
