Notes & Reviews:

For centuries the infinitely varied tragic and sometimes comic romantic entanglements of ancient mythic and legendary heroes have inspired virtually all art forms. Drawn from an old Celtic tale about a tragic adulterous love, ancient Greek myths about love first conflicted then fulfilled, and a Spanish medieval legend about a notorious womanizer whose unceasing yearnings for love end only by death, the orchestral music here is rooted in the characteristically rich full-blooded intensity of 19th century romanticism. Young Conductor Jean-Philippe Tremblay leads the Orchestre de la Francophonie Canadienne in a dazzling interpretation of this work.
