The great Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski was an important conductor of his own highly expressive music. This is Lutoslawski's final appearance as a conductor?áof his own works before his death on 7th February, 1994.With Chain 1 he developed a new compositional method linking contrasting musical ideas into a satisfying whole. Partita, Interlude and Chain 2 form an impressive trilogy. Chantefleurs et Chantefables is a luminous, bittersweet song cycle. Canadian soprano Valdine Anderson has been acclaimed for performances ranging from Baroque to contemporary music. Fujiko Imajishi, concertmaster of the National Ballet of Canada and Esprit Orchestra, has enjoyed a long association with Toronto's New Music Concerts.
