Description: The original score of Mathieu’s concerto, written in the Quebec composer’s own hand, was discovered in 2008 but it was only in the last three years that eiting and restoration were done. The differences, which were noteworthy, between this original score and the Concerto de Québec, the well-known, modified, version of the work, were the starting point for the enormous undertaking aimed at restoring this masterwork of Mathieu’s. See last month - 09T011 - for description if you still don’t have or know this concerto. Alain Lefèvre (piano), Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra; JoAnn Falletta.
