The music of Barbara Pentland (1912-2000) traces a history of twentieth century music composition in Canada. From her Winnipeg roots to the nascent Toronto avant-garde of the mid-forties, to the final half-century of her life spent in Vancouver, Pentland’s music evolved in the context of shifting international compositional trends and her own persistent individualism. With the exception of the Octet for Winds of 1948, the works recorded here are drawn from her remarkably productive later years.
