Product Description

Sept ans après la parution de son dernier disque, André Gagnon est de retour avec un tout nouvel album. L'illustre maestro s'est laissé inspirer autant par la nature sauvage que par la nature humaine pour composer plusieurs nouvelles pièces originales, dont certaines enregistrées avec l'Orchestre Symphonique de Trois-Rivières sous la direction de Jacques Lacombe. Les chemins ombragés, réalisé par André Gagnon et Marc Beaulieu, propose 11 pièces instrumentales douces, empruntant des sentiers mi-clairs, mi-obscurs.

Seven years after the release of his last album, André Gagnon is back with a brand new album. The renowned maestro was inspired by both wild nature and human nature resulting in new and original pieces, some recorded with the Trois-Rivières Symphonic Orchestra under the direction of Jacques Lacombe. Les chemins ombragés, directed by André Gagnon himself and Marc Beaulieu presents 11 instrumental songs, both gentle and inspired, undertaking light and obscure paths at the same time.

HASH(0x9f3f3528) out of 5 stars Music for beautiful interludes, and quiet introspective moments. Dec 25 2015
By eTripper - Published on Amazon.com
I have a number of 'digital files' that feature this great French 'pianissimo' master. Many of the selections, remind one of backing scores from French films of the 1960's. Where the only sound one hears is the music, chronicling the actors movements on screen. Especially, the somber and short good-byes, so often acted-out by the hapless, cosmopolitans. Who are so often depicted as being quietly desperate, and locked hopelessly into their own circumstance. It's very easy to hear Gagnon's 'classical bearing' in all the pieces, he plays precisely, and beautifully. His 'technique' reminds me at times of the great Erik Satie's movements. "Les chemins ombrages" translates to "The Shaded Paths" if my French doesn't fail me. This is an apt title, and really reflects the spirit of the album. A place where the harshness of the day, or life itself; is offered but a brief respite. There are eleven movements on this offering, and Andre glides easily from one feeling, to another with a commanding grace. A full orchestra with strings adds emphasis to some of the passages, but never in any way overpowers the poignancy his playing imparts. 'Le piano de Claude' is a personal favorite of mine, the harmonica adds a touch of pathos. 'Cantilene' is the perfect ending, punctuated with a light-operatic vocalise, as the word 'fin' flashes, and the 'final film credits' begin to role. Very elegantly done, and should appeal to those Gagnon fans, who relish great depth in music. Recommended.
