Product Description

Amazon.com

Poulenc's artistic credo was as charming as his music. "There must be room for some really good music that uses other people's chords," he's reported to have said. And so in his Trio for Piano, Oboe and Bassoon, as well as the Sextet for Piano and Winds, Mozart and Haydn rub shoulders with cartoon music and Edith Piaf. It's a typically eclectic mix that somehow never sounds incongruous or out of place, so smoothly does the composer segue from one style to another. Along with the delicious pieces by Roussel, Français, and Saint-Saëns, this delightful disc is simply the last word in charm and elegance, and it's superbly recorded, too. Essential. --David Hurwitz

I liked this CD so much that I bought it for 2 friends for Christmas presents.
The ensemble playing is uniformly strong, and the works are surprising and delightful. I continue to discover the joy of Poulenc, and this CD is a smart collection of works.

The woodwinds have fun with this, and various pieces give prominence to different instruments, so it is of interest to any woodwind player. More importantly, the overall collection is a great introduction to more modern works; rather than being ponderous and hard to access, because they are upbeat pieces, these are easy to attach to and listen to. Enjoy!

Not the greatest selections of Poulenc, but easy to listen to as background music.
