Notes & Reviews:

Francis Poulenc's catalogue contains some 200 works, consisting of mostly of vocal music. It also includes many pieces for piano, four concertos, music for the theatre, three ballets, and a dozen works of chamber music. For this recording, Pentaèdre has chosen major chamber music works including the sextet and trio with piano and sonatas for wind instruments.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This program has the sextet, the flute and clarinet sonatas, trio, Elegie for horn, and Novelette for wind quintet (originally a piano piece). Both Pentaendre and pianist David Jalbert have several other recordings on ATMA. You'll get stung by horn player Louis- Philippe Marsolais's aggressive playing at the beginning of the Elegie. The rest is very good too. I'd like to hear the first two movements taken slower. Superb sound.
