Review: Prof. Lacasse - Lost and Found

 

The Canadian producer and composer Prof. Lacasse (Serge Lacasse) shares with an intimate and minimal neo-classical piece that is quite breath taking from start to end. “Lost and Found” is nearly three minutes long and features a dark and somber piano tone, one that drifts in and out of focus, leaving a hauntingly beautiful trail behind its path.

“Lost and Found” is the opening track to his latest album, Piano Evocations which features twelve other wonderful pieces, perfect for the minimal piano fan to get lost within.

He recently produced two albums of piano music by Quebec artist Marc-André Pépin, including Tempus fugit nominated for “Best Instrumental album of the Year” at the 2018 ADISQ Gala. Similarly, Héra Ménard’s eponym album, also produced by Lacasse, was acclaimed as “Discovery of the Year” and nominated in the “Singer-songwriter” category at the Gala Country 2018. As his artist name suggests, Prof. Lacasse is also professor of musicology at the Faculté de musique, Université Laval in Quebec City.
