The Bounds of Our Dreams is a monumental recording which brings together three of Canada's greatest artists: the National Arts Centre Orchestra (NAC Orchestra) and its Music Director Alexander Shelley, pianist Alain Lefevre and composer Walter Boudreau. The works on this recording paint stories in music, vividly evoking the characters, places, and periods that they depict.

One of these works, a world premiere recording, is Le Concerto de l’asile, which was born from a fiveminute waltz that Walter Boudreau composed for a staged production of Claude Gauvreau's L’Asile de la pureté. It was at the request of Alain Lefevre that Walter Boudreau initially composed a piano version of this waltz and, later, a concerto based on the original waltz.

Two important orchestral works complete the program of this album. There is the epic symphonic suite Scheherazade by Russian composer Nikolai Rimski-Korsakov, with exceptional solos from concertmaster Yosuke Kawasaki. The second is Pavane pour une infante défunte by Maurice Ravel, a miniature musical masterpiece, a perfect and enduring vision of a beautiful young princess, whose dance echoes through the ages. Both Ravel and Rimski-Korsakov were consummate musical “painters” whose works showcase the virtuosity, power and intimacy of the symphony orchestra.

Recorded on February 20 and 21, 2018 in Southam Hall, Canada’s National Arts Centre. Piano CFX: Yamaha Canada Music Ltd.
