Notes & Reviews:

ATMA Classique proudly presents the world premier recording of Concertango grosso performed by pianist Louise Bessette, who commissioned the work from Qubcois composer Franois Dompierre. This all-Dompierre recording features the participation of several of Bessettes esteemed musical colleagues. Dompierres Les Diableries is featured in a new arrangement for piano, violin, and string orchestra, with the special participation of violinist Kerson Leong. Bessette also performs Dompierres Concerto de Saint-Irne, commissioned by the late Franoys Bernier, founder of Domaine Forget Festival. The recording includes one of the composers 24 Prludes for piano. The Appassionata chamber orchestra performs La Mort de Cleste, which is based on music Dompierre wrote for Francis Mankiewitzs film Les portes tournantes.
