Notes & Reviews:

Rive Gauche is an album of Alain Lefèvre's compositions. Some are solo piano, a few are done as a jazz trio and there is a duo with violinist Angèle Dubeau. Asked why he composes, Alain Lefèvre says "I have always composed to tell a story, a story that helps listeners find their own. When you have had, for almost half a century, a special connection with the greatest masterpieces, you need a large dose of humility and innocence in order to give music lovers these special moments of life, as everything I compose starts simply with a smile, a phone call, an emotion."

Alain Lefèvre is acclaimed as a "hero" (Los Angeles Times), a "spectacular pianist" (Fanfare), and a "smashing performer" (Washington Post). The Montreal pianist and composer pursues a sparkling international career. He has performed in more than forty countries and tours repeatedly world-wide, performing to prestigious venues, in recital and with international orchestras. He has been guest soloist of numerous orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall, the London Mozart Players, the China Philharmonic Orchestra and many others.
