Notes & Reviews:

"This is subtitled "Works for Piano & Strings, Volume 1". Theodore Dubois (1837-1924) was a colleague of Faure and Saint-Saens. Like them he lived a long and productive life. Like them also, he lived into the ugly years of the early 20th Century, long enough to see his style considered passe. Although best known for his religious music, Dubois turns out to be a lively and accomplished master of instrumental styles. He is perhaps less technically demanding than Saint-Saens, his harmonies perhaps less personal than Faure's, but he has a winsome clarity of expression and a mastery of effortless counterpoint coupled with a harmonic and melodic warmth of expression fully comparable to theirs. It is a great pleasure to hear such fine music from an unexpected source. Thanks to the pianist of this trio, Stephane Lemelin, for his research into French music of this period, resulting in this lovely release from Canada. Hochelaga, by the way, is the Indian name for Montreal. The playing is lovely, the recorded sound excellent." -ARG
