This album celebrates the 90th birthday of one of Canada’s best-loved composers – Eldon Rathburn.

"...Eldon Rathburn’s career is celebrated in a retrospective CD featuring the core musicians of the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival where the disc was launched this past summer. The earliest of the dozen pieces was written in 1933, the latest in 2002. They represent what the English call "light music" (Coates, Hoffnung), a category reflected in North Americans such as Leroy Anderson and Spike Jones. Touches of satire, even slapstick, are balanced by a sensitive lyricism; it all suggests long and expert instrumental experience. Among many enjoyable items is a short show-piece for banjo and strings.

"This 90-year-old New Brunswick-born film composer has written some good stuff. Amazingly enough, most of the selections on this disc date from the last seven years."
