We are celebrating in 2011 the 25th anniversary of the publishing house Les Productions d'OZ.
In 2009, I invited 25 of our composers to write an original piece for this event. All of them accepted immediately, with great enthusiasm, and it was the beginning of a beautiful journey.
I entrusted my daughter, Marlène Lemay, to bring to life these compositions, both on this recording and on stage, knowing that she would display her wonderful talent. When she was born in 1990, I dedicated my guitar method to her with the citation: "To Marlène, for whom everything begins." Today, after more than 20 years, it is 25 composers from around the world who are dedicating their pieces to her.
What could be more gratifying and stimulating for a publisher than having such a wonderful project as this, with composers, a special performer, and dear friends involved in the creation of a book and recording!
