Notes & Reviews:

After exploring the universe of Ravel, Anima Eterna continues its voyage of discovery with Poulenc. In Jos van Immerseel's view, this composer is one of the most significant personalities of the 20th century, coupling immense erudition with surprising spontaneity - not to mention the fact that Poulenc was also a particularly brilliant pianist. The works presented here are steeped in the French traditions of the 16th & 18th centuries. In the Concerto for two pianos, Poulenc breaks totally with the traditional concerto genre, liberating the form and the thematic development. Above all, the piece expresses the sheer pleasure of playing!
