Nicholas Papador: Points Of Departure
Catalog: CMCCD 20715
Composed by: Gilbert; Rose; Smith; Ledroit
Percussionist Nicholas Papador’s move to Canada in 2005 precipitated a deep interest in the rich repertoire of contemporary Canadian solo percussion music. The title of this recording is the English translation of François Rose’s Points d’emergence, and the idea of borders—as simultaneously rigid and porous—links the composers and the cultural and aesthetic influences emerging in their music. This recording contains primarily première recordings; Papador is, in most cases, the second performer to play these pieces and the first to commercially record them.
