Notes & Reviews:

JUNO Award winning composer John Burge truly revels in the sonorous variety of textures and emotions that are possible in chamber music. Driven by strong melodic profiles and rhythmic independence, the music on this CD is inspired by themes as diverse as nature, particle physics and ballet, offering a tour de force of instrumental writing. Award-winning piano quartet Ensemble Made In Canada rises to the occasion with passionate and committed performances, drawing on their vast experience, unique sound blend and mix of personalities. Named among 80 "Women to Watch" by Chatelaine Magazine, Ensemble Made In Canada is praised for "astonishing energy and zeal... a true ensemble... not just unified playing, but with one soul." The group is dedicated to commissioning new Canadian work and is Ensemble-in-Residence at Western University in London, Ontario. JUNO Award winning composer and professor at Queen's University, Dr. John Burge, recently received the Queen's University Award for Excellence in Research and Scholarship and was inducted into the Royal Society of Canada. From 1998-2006 he was President of the Canadian League of Composers, and serves on the Board of Directors of the SOCAN Foundation.
