This was his first Piano Solo album. It was produced in Japan, where by the way, is the largest foreign music seller. This is one of my favorites (and I have over 20 Andre Gagnon albums). The melodies are simple yet profound. Each one takes you to a different mood. It's hard to choose, but listen to "Une Longue Absence" or "Retour en Arriere". You can always distinguish Andre Gagnon from the rest. It's style is unique: romantic, melancholic, tender. As a piano player, he has always chosen to focus on the melodies and the harmonies, rather then the technical aspects like most of modern composers. In times where there is a LOT of piano players, Andre Gagnon is really one of a kind.
