Product Description

Paru en 1975, Neiges s'est vendu à plusieurs centaines de milliers d'exemplaires dans le monde. Enfin de retour sur le marché, cet oeuvre magistrale propose des airs d'une grande poésie. Ce disque, qu'André Gagnon décrit comme « un résumé de son enfance », compte notamment les désormais classiques pièces Neiges et Wow, qui depuis des générations fait vibrer les planchers des discothèques ici et à l'étranger. La pièce occupera même les premiers rangs, pendant vingt-quatre semaines, du prestigieux Billboard américain en 1976. L'album vaudra à André Gagnon un premier trophée Juno pour l'album le plus vendu au pays et ne cessera dès lors d'obtenir un succès incomparable.

The pieces on this album (it was vinyl way back then) evoke a lot of memories. The piano playing is top-notch. It's pretty, lyrical, and lovely. There are some down-tempo parts that make you think of a rainy day in Montreal. Some may think it prosaic, but It's got a lot to say if you listen, listen.

In the 1970's I purchased this same music - only in a 33 1/2 record format and I truly enjoyed the piano music by Andre Gagnon! With time, moves and changes to formats, my records were all slowly being replaced with cassette tapes and now CD's.

One day a couple of weeks ago, I just happened to think of my old record collection and decided to search the Amazon site and located the entire collection of piano music by Andre Gagnon. I purchased some of his CD's including Neiges and once again I am enjoying his music - it truly brings back old memories of the 1970's!

If you enjoy nice relaxing piano music accompanied by an orchestra - then Andre Gagnon's music is for you!

I found this music to be very relaxing; it is everything I was hoping for! It is great for playing in the back ground while reading or doing light work at the computer.

Vous voulez faire danser votre bébé sur des airs enjoués? Cet album est idéal pour cela! À l'époque, j'ai moi-même beaucoup dansé sur ces mélodies plus entrainantes les unes que les autres.

Wow! (no pun intended) Sept. 14 2004
By Jesse D. Hamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The almost trademark serenity of many Andre Gagnon albums is relegated to the back burner on this particular endeavor, with Gagnon showcasing in full fury the complete range of his versatility both as a pianist and a composer. Accordingly, this nine-track outing covers a wide range of genres, offering a little bit of everything for the informed music lover.

Commencing from the beginning, the brief but satisfying

"L'Overture Eclair" provides a lively opening in preparation for "Dedethoven", in which Gagnon's virtuosic fingers cascade the length of all 8 octaves amidst a dramatic rendition that fuses the framework of Beethoven's third piano concerto with elements of Moonlight Sonata and other reputable works by the famous composer.

But, by far, the optimum highlight of this particular album resides with the terminally infectious disco groover, as appropriately and simply entitled "Wow". Clearly, the accetuation of its melodic beauty with the compliment of a festive rhythm section, culminating in significant layers of percussion and wah-wah guitar riffs, yields little room with which to contest the song's Juno award status, as obtained in 1976.

Finally, the title track, which itself commences under a melodic and ambient serenity before building to its dramatic conclusion, offers a worthy and fitting climax with which to conclude the album.

The rest you'll have to find out for yourself, so get cracking. It's only a click away.
