Notes & Reviews:

After devoting her previous recording to Olivier Messian, pianist Louise Bessette takes on a totally different musical journey, with a program of Spanish works. An exhilarating and elegant concert pianist, Louise Bessette stands out as one of the preeminent performers of music from our times. Her twenty recordings and contributions to the advancement and dissemination of new music as well as participations in numerous international festivals have burnished her reputation as one of Canada's great musicians.

In October 2001, she was received as a Member of the Order of Canada, and appointed, in June 2005, Officier of the Ordre national du Québec. In November 2009, she was named Ambassador of Canadian Music by the Canadian Music Centre. Since fall 1996, she has been Professor of piano at the Montreal Conservatory of Music.
