Notes & Reviews:

"This round-up covers 50 years of [Francaix's] creative life, starting from the Serenade which helped get his name around in his precocious early twenties. With buoyant and breezy playing in a rather resonant acoustic, this is an hour of pure joy." ***** - Robert Maycock, BBC

'An hour of pure joy' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Again and again while listening to Thierry Fischer's ebullient performances I smile and wish that I had met Jean Françaix' (Gramophone)

'The Ulster Orchestra sound captivated by this music, as well they might... pure pleasure from beginning to end' (International Record Review)

'This collection serves to remind us what 20th-century joys can be found away from the fashionable modernists. The Ulster players may not actually be French, but they fooled me. An utter delight' (The Times)

'The Ulster Orchestra has acquired a deserved reputation for the strength of its sectional work and the quality of its soloists, both aspects of performance that come to the fore in Françaix... Highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA) 'thoroughly entertaining and immensely intelligent' ( The Evening Standard)

'Très bien composé, ce nouveau disque témoigne parfaitement des influences et des particularismes de l'art clair et spirituel de Françaix' (Répertoire, France)

'Thierry Fischer secures some authentically Gallic character from the Ulster Orchestra... Wonderful' (Yorkshire Post)
