Information/Write-up

Alexander Brott, born in Montréal, Canada in 1915, is a violinist and conductor as well as a composer. After preliminary study and training in Montréal, he continued his studies in New York, but later returned to Montréal to make a great contribution to music in Canada. He is at present chairman of the department of orchestral instruments, Faculty of Music, McGill University, Montréal, and for some time now he has been concertmaster and associate conductor of Les Concerts Symphoniques de Montréal. He has travelled extensively in Europe where he has had considerable success in spreading an awareness of Canada's creative musical activity and achievements. This work, "Sept for Seven", was composed by Mr. Brott in 1954 to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the McGill Conservatorium of Music in Montréal.
