The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Brillant orchestration. Hétu might appeal to those who like Braga Santos (Bartok, Martinu...) et.al.

The Saint-Maurice is a Québec river that saw the birth of the first industrial establishment in Canada in 1730, a forge and foundry (hence the brass and bells/anvils at the beginning). Later on it became a major waterway for wood floating, the timber being floated down to Trois-Rivières, a city that for decades was the largest newsprint supplier in the world. Incidentally, Trois-Rivières was Hétu’s birthplace. It’s that heritage that Is evoked in that nice piece (thanks for that link, btw  :)).

Hétu studied under Dutilleux and Messiaen. His music is accessible, not ‘modern’ in the spiky, arid, abstruse sense. It should have broad appeal IMO. I particularly like his fine 5th symphony.
