"Esquisse Torrobienne and Matin de Printemps are charming miniatures and well worth a look at by any intermediate or above player. Both compositions are highly lyrical and evoke optimism for life. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through these works and will definately reccomend them to my own students to add to their repertoire." Steve Marsh - Classical Guitar Magazine UK
Esquisse Torrobienne was written after a morning walk in the mountains around Mont St-Gregoire near where I live. This was during the fall of 2003, at a time when the colors on the trees looked like a majestic painting. As I neared the top of a mountain the first bars of this piece came to me with the melody dancing like a sound of victory. All those colors mixed together were a pure joy to see.
Matin de Printemps (Spring Morning) was written in September-October 2005. This is not exactly the time of the year called Spring here in Quebec, but the piece is a reflection of joy for me, like a spring morning, where nature is waking and birds are beginning to sing again. It is a most magnificent and joyful time!
