Notes & Reviews:

On its first CD on MDG the Norddeutscher Figuralchor, one of Germany's leading chamber choirs, under the conductor Jorg Straube ranges over the broad spectrum of Francis Poulenc's secular choral music. Francis Poulenc was from a very musical Parisian family. He learned to play the piano from his mother. As a young man he was influenced by Igor Stravinsky and Maurice Chevalier and just as much by French vaudeville and soon chanced upon a group of composers led by Erik Satie and Jean Cocteau, known as "Les Six."
