Notes & Reviews:
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jean Françaix, Wergo has compiled selected recordings from the label's catalog (some available on CD for the first time) that display the wide-ranging talents of this acclaimed French composer and pianist, known for his prolific output and vibrant style. Though he often put his own modern spin on the old modes of expression, Françaix was an avowed neoclassicist who rejected atonality and he drew from great literature of the past for his vocal settings. This three-disc set includes not only his own compositions, but also Françaix's arrangements and re-workings of pieces by Chabrier, Schubert and Chopin.
