The first two-CD set commercially released by Arktos Recordings is devoted completely to the music of one of Canada’s most interesting young composers, Howard Bashaw. Architecture, symmetry, exploration — even whimsy — all are apparent. And once you’ve heard the intricate design of his works, those facets are revealed. Some of Alberta’s finest musicians are featured on this bold program of musical innovation and exploration.
