For the past fifty years, a group of Canada's finest artists has been producing works of the highest order -- for a tiny audience. If they were painters their names would be familiar and their work hanging on gallery walls across the country. But we're talking about Canadian composers. Their gallery walls are concert halls, living rooms, Walkmans. CBC Records OVATION SERIES documents the emergence of this distinctly Canadian music. Each disc in this and subsequent 5-CD sets, is dedicated to a single composer; each collects in one convenient place that composer's most accessible and representative works.
