- ItemArabesque(2020) Connah, Cyndi; LeBel, EmilieArabesque solo piano composed by Cyndi Connah. I grew up playing Debussy and thought it would be enjoyable to create a piece similar to his Deux Arabesques, No.1. This composition focuses on smooth 16th-note passages with contrasting sections of articulation. Musician: Cyndi Connah, piano.
- ItemBe mine(2020) Connah, Cyndi; LeBel, EmilieBe Mine medium jazz composed by Cyndi Connah. This tune started out as a contrafact of My Funny Valentine and then morphed into the lovely jazz tune it is today. I wrote the song for my wonderful husband, Tim. Musicians: Mitchell Brown, drums; Michael Campbell, guitar; Zack Lim, piano and keyboard; Konnor Miskiman, bass; Cassidy Zahar, vocals.
- ItemFire & ice(2020) Connah, Cyndi; LeBel, EmilieFire & Ice “Bond” song composed and arranged by Cyndi Connah. With all the classic Bond themes out over the years, for this song I focused on the dichotomy of the man himself. James Bond is a man of contrasts, passionate and loving, yet harsh and cold enough to deal with any enemies in his way. Musicians: Mitchell Brown, drums; Michael Campbell, guitar; Zack Lim, piano and keyboard; Brianna Lizotte, violin; Konnor Miskiman, bass; Elissa Moores, trumpet; Noah New, trombone; Rodrigo Sosa, trumpet; Cassidy Zahar, vocals.
- ItemSpanish fugue(2020) Connah, Cyndi; LeBel, EmilieA piece with a bit of Spanish flair. I wanted something to contrast my previous piece, Pathos, and wrote this. I wanted to weave the String Quartet together and have them overlap polyphonically to create something interesting and beautiful to listen to. Musicians: Joanna Ciapka-Sangster, violin; Yue Deng, violin; Leanne Maitland, viola; Ronda Metszies, cello.
- ItemThe witnesses(2020) Connah, Cyndi; LeBel, EmilieThe Witnesses lieder composed by Cyndi Connah. This art song is based on the poem “The Witnesses” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Longfellow was in favour of abolishing slavery. His poem exposes the pride of mankind and the atrocities of our past. The slaves who perished are witnesses to this evil. This poem impacted me greatly, and I felt it was important to write a piece of music that highlighted the deep sorrow and loss that occurred. I believe that all people are equal. Musicians: Zack Lim, piano; Cassidy Zahar, vocals.
