A production error in our November issue left off the author credit for the lively cover portrait on Louise-Philippe Marsolais, which was written by Montreal Gazette music critic Arthur Kaptainis. We are proud that Mr. Kaptainis has begun to contribute to La Scena Musicale (see his monthly CD reviews) and we apologize for this omission.
