Programme Note:
In northern Saskatchewan exist the most beautiful and serene lakes one could imagine. Nature with all its majesty opens her arms and engulfs every living being. Deception Lake is one such body of water in the remote north accessible only by air. I wrote this work to depict the serenity of the area, one untouched by man’s hand. Close your eyes and you’ll hear the wind as it whispers through the trees and the waters lap upon the shore, echoing stories of the past.
