Record Label: Centrediscs / Centredisques

This recording marks the first Centrediscs CD completely devoted to one of Canada's most popular and engaging composers Alexina Louie. Featuring four outstanding works, the recording represents the composer's own favourites from among her numerous chamber compositions.

"Composed over the last two decades, the four pieces on this disc open a wide window on this Toronto composer's mysterious and evocative world...Bravo to Centrediscs for this well produced, well programmed recording."
- Colin Eatock, Wholenote

"Un disque suprenant."
- La Scena Musicale

"A satisfying composer portrait and I would hope this CD will help some of Alexina Louie's music to make its way across the Atlantic Ocean to the UK, where we are all too ignorant of the Canadian musical scene!"

- Peter Grahame Woolf, Musical Pointers, UK
