Notes & Reviews:

What is "French" about French composers and players? In these recordings we can hear virtuosity, tangy tone colors, and a sheer joie de vivre that can be missing from some more careful modern performances. Tempos are breakneck, especially from pianist/composer Francis Poulenc and in the Trio by Georges Auric, but there is a Debussy-like sensuousness in Albert Roussel's Divertissement. The oboist in that piece is Pierre Pierlot, who can also be heard in the solo oboe part of André Jolivet's Sérénade, and in a Sonata by Jacques Hotteterre.
