Notes & Reviews:

The LCO return to disc on Signum with a new programme of French orchestral works by Ravel, Fauré, Poulenc and Ibert. Their 'LCO Live' series captures the vibrant, exciting performances they give at their London home of St. John's, Smith Square. Singled out as one of the capital's (and the nation's) leading ensembles, the LCO and their Music Director Christopher Warren-Green performed for the wedding service of TRHs The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge earlier this year.

"The latest of the LCO Live series offers an engaging and varied programme of French Romanticism...The centrepiece of the programme is Poulenc's "Piano Concerto", the opening section of which alone seems to incorporate more disparate styles than most composers cover in a career." -The Independent

"With this programme of combined charm and exuberance, the London Chamber Orchestra deliver a crowd pleaser. Pascal Rogé has become something of Poulenc expert, and his sympathetic yet witty playing makes sense of Poulenc's profusion of ideas in the centrepiece Piano Concerto, getting the right balance between fun and musical sophistication." -Classic FM
