Notes & Reviews:

"There is something very special about French chamber music for wind instruments and this collection is a splendid example. Vovka Ashkenazy and the Reykjavik Wind Quintet set off with great elan and dazzling virtuosity (especially from the horn) into the Poulenc Sextet. The composer has the rare capacity of being able to move from the most frivolous high spirits in the opening movement to moments of gentle poignancy in the central divertissement, and these players catch both with wit, elegance and finesse." -Gramophone
