Bass is the Place Michel Donato et ses amis québécois / Effendi FND 166 Having turned 80 last summer, Michel Donato has not yet played his last note. In this, a milestone year of his life, the bassist has offered himself and his listeners a nice little birthday gift: a neatly tied package of 10 medium-length tracks spanning some 50 minutes. Joining him for the ride are three journeymen: pianist François Bourassa (who composed the bulk of the tunes), Frank Lozano on tenor and soprano saxes, and Pierre Tanguay on drums. This band, which first started as a dedicatory band to the…

Vienna 1840 : Romantic Viennese Music Pascal Valois, guitar Analekta AN 29197 Release: Jan. 22, 2022 For the recording of Vienna 1840, Pascal Valois has made it his mission to rediscover this expressive way of interpreting music as it was played in the German-speaking world of the Romantic period.

After an album dedicated to Jacques Hétu’s piano concertos, which earned him a nomination for the 2021 Juno Awards, pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre is back with a new release on ATMA Classique. This virtuoso, already known for his recordings of André Mathieu and Rachmaninoff, here makes his first foray into Ravel’s musical universe. Genesis of the project “Since we had an Érard piano at our disposal, which I really like, I thought I had to use it,” he says. “I called Johanne Goyette from ATMA and spoke to my philanthropist friend [Jacques Marchand, who acquired this piano in 2018] and explained…

The thought of recording an album, Noël piano-voix, dawned on me after performing a Christmas music recital with pianist Lisandre Sévigny Di Quinzio. I enjoyed singing the music, and the audience was quite receptive. After talking to my accompanist, we agreed to be equal partners in this venture. Fundraising Recording a CD is an expensive proposition, far more than we could afford on our own. So we got a fundraising campaign together. We solicited financial contributions, regardless of the amount. In exchange, we offered various incentives to eventual benefactors. Happily, we met our goal, or just about. Repertoire We established three…
