Notes & Reviews:

Although Francis Poulenc has the popular image of being an outstanding composer of religious choral works and colourful orchestral scores, he was essentially a miniaturist with a prolific output of chamber and instrumental music. The sonatas for flute and clarinet are his most frequently performed works, the bittersweet melodies making the works so immediately attractive. The splendid performers on this CD bring the perfect blend of virtuosity and ensemble playing to the music.
