Notes & Reviews:

"The music of Jean Francaix has such an unerring elegance and cultured quality that he reminds you of those graceful peacocks that sweep across the manicured lawns before an imposing French chateau. The plumage is flawless, with colors that are a subtle blend of hues, the shape is beautifully conceived, and the gait confident and considered...The performances throughout the disc perfectly complement the music's elegance...An absolute must for every Francaix addict." -Denton, Fanfare

'Four delightful works. Music which is as easy on the ear as it is beguilingly performed. A magical disc ideal for unwinding after a long hard day at the chalk face' (Classic CD)

'An hour's worth of pure delight' (Hi Fi News)

'An absolute must for every Françaix addict' (Fanfare, USA)
