No, please don't count this as a question, *ig. It cannot possibly be Calixa Lavallee because he died in the 19th Century, and our composition is 20th Century. :)

So that's why I didn't consider his name earlier! :lol: I actually went through the list a second time, but looking only at the year of birth.

I have to give up. My sources do not list any more Canadian composers meeting the requirements. I suppose *igs point that his compositions do not fit the standard definition of classical music would be the reason for this, but I can't find anyone to fit the bill.

recap:

Quebec-born white-male composer born in 19th Century, piece written in first half of 20th. piece is orchestral and has featured instrument/s (according to title), no singing, it is unconventional (sounds at least a little like non-classical music), no unconventional instruments.

the composer is not Champagne, Percy Faith, Oscar Peterson, Marye's nephew, Vanya, or Willan. not Mathieu, bourdon, vezina.

shap, I don't think that would be the reason, it is a classical piece influenced by something else, he definitely worked within the classical genre.

I'll have to Google some more, substituting 'Quebec' for 'Canada', and see if anything else turns out. So far, the only others born in the 19th century and composing in the 20th have been non-white or female. Obviously, I'm missing someone, I'll have to look harder.

I triede searching for quebeck and composer on google and didn't find my composer. maybe because he didn't spend most of his life there.

Try Quebec (without the k). ;)

Shap/Nav/Marye/anyone else, it's time for a group huddle: :grouphug:
http://www.musiccentre.ca/home.cfm

I think this site will have anything we can possibly know (or want to know :mrgreen: ) about Canadian Classical Music.

I suggest we split the A-Z into 3 or 4 ranges and we each search a range.

I'll ask a narrow down question to our Mr. *ig.

*ig, does the composer's last name start with the letter in the range of A-M?

We'll reconvene.....

OK, I'll start looking at the A-F section, noting down potentials. This may take awhile. Hopefully there is no time limit on solving a 30Q :cry:

I started looking just through A-C, but gave up. Too many canadian names that it felt like looking for a needle in a bunch of needles. :rolleyes:

Thanks for checking Hex. How is your Beethoven statuette doing these days? :)

I have thoroughly picked through the range A-F, and have come up with 3 potentials.

That leaves the range G-M to peruse. I'm taking a break to grab some tea. :flex:

He's doing real well; he sits on the very top of my large book shelf that contains my entire classical CD collection. Just as gargoyles were needed to ward off evil from important buildings, Beethoven scowls menacingly down to any who would dare tamper with my collection. Sometimes I even feel intimidated... for instance, if I grab something from Chopin or Wagner, I glimpse up and feel like he's giving me this dirty look for not choosing the Missa Solemnis CD instead. Other than that, I'm still proud to have found it :)

Regarding this search for the canadian composer, I'll help you out, Catmando, and examine K-M and see what I find. Bignaf, why couldn't you pick some nice obsure baroque composer, so I could go through a list of those guys? I mean, canadian composers... bleh :mrgreen:

Thanks Hex, I got your list of potentials K-M.

That leaves only G-J to search.

Before we go any further, I do have to ask *ig another question, and this one isn't a wasted one, I'm sure.

*ig, is this composer in question actually listed on the website composer links?

Ok, I've finished off G to J, so that covers them all.

I'm compiling the list of candidates. I'll PM Hex, Nav, Shap. If anyone else wants in, I'll PM also.

This is my 666 post!

Hex, Nav, Shap,

I've PM'd you the list. It is a list of 7 candidates. However, it likely really is between 4 true candidates (we know were born in Quebec).

Time to do your research! :)

Does the piece contain more than 1 movement? (I don't think this question was asked already)
