19th century popular music performed by Lawrence House, 1895 Conn cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn and Aurora Dokken, 1885 Bechstein art case grand piano. Symbols such as maple leaves and the flag reflect the unique geography and demographics of the nation, an awakening of confident nationalism which would come to full flower in the exploits of Canada in the First World War. "... a refreshing recording of 19th Century Canadian salon music...in the capable hands of trumpeter Lawrence House and pianist Aurora Dokken, the sentiments of this bygone era are brought back to life. This is music to enjoy strawberry shortcake with! The disc features compositions by such early popular composers as W.O. Forsyth, Calixa Lavallée (best known as the composer of "Oh Canada"), Gena Branscombe and Guillame Couture. The comprehensive liner notes give historical details in an entertaining manner. ... House shines in his performance while pianist Dokken captures effortlessly the stylistic nuances of the works, especially in the solo piano tracks." - Tiina Kiik, The WholeNote CD Review, Toronto, Jul 01 to Sep 07, 2006. "I wanted to tell you I listened to the CD the other evening with pleasure....Your performance is lovely." - John Beckwith, former Dean of Music and Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto, April, 2006. "...excellent playing and fine pieces...." - Robert Nagel, New York Brass Quintet (ret.), Professor Emeritus, Yale University, January, 2006. "Design and music are both gorgeous! ....The tune, When You and I Were Young, Maggie is one that has haunted me for several years. Love the dark trumpet tones...."the reprise" of Maggie at cut 16 was also a very nice touch. This is a CD which will visit my machine with regularity!" - Timothy Sullivan, Composer, Rochester, NY, March, 2006. "The Maggie CD is great! The performances are really elegant....." - Edwin Harkins, Composer/Performer and Professor of trumpet, University of California San Diego, January 2006.
