Notes & Reviews:

Haenssler presents this unique compilation of French piano concertos performed by virtuoso Florian Uhlig. Included in this recording are largely neglected works by Debussy, Poulenc, Ravel and Francaix. Since 2008 Uhlig has been Artistic Director of the Johannesburg International Mozart Festival.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
Debussy's unjustly-dismissed Fantasie and Francaix's pithy Concertino are the highlights of this programme, superbly interpreted by Florian Uhlig.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2013
What an enticing programme this is...Uhlig proves a compelling advocate and the winds of the accompanying orchestra seem to gain in confidence as the work progresses...The über-compact Françaix Concertino is perhaps the highlight here, Uhlig and the orchestra vibrantly capturing the work's myriad moods, culminating in a rip-roaring finale.
