Poulenc: Complete Chamber Music – London Concord Ensemble

This new recording from the acclaimed London Concord Ensemble presents the complete chamber music of Francis Poulenc, including the Sextet and Trio for piano and winds, which are arguably the greatest written for their combination of instruments. His chamber music is unfailingly inventive and often evokes feelings of profound reflection, as well as offering the dazzling wit for which he is so famous. The disc is a must for lovers of both chamber music and the French repertoire.

"...Even if you already own one or another Poulenc chamber music collections, this one should definately be on your to-buy list."   - Jerry Dubins

"...Anyone who is famailiar with any of Poulenc’s music will be delighted by this set..." - Lynn René Bayley

Fanfare - September/October 2012

"...these performances show a joyous and intimate involvement with this immensely rewarding music, and I think Poulenc would have approved."

JD Moore - American Record Guide - July/August 2012

"This is an extremely enjoyable set of Poulenc’s chamber music. It’s certainly one of the best around and, along with the familiar works, these two well-filled discs also include a couple of rarities that may well give the London Conchord Ensemble set an additional appeal to serious Poulenc collectors..."

Nigel Simeone - International Record Review - June 2012

"...This is an excellent, spirited two-CD set encompassing 14 works for various combinations ... The London Conchord Ensemble manifestly relish what Poulenc has to offer, playing with panache, wit and discreet sensitivity in performances that are a constant joy."

Geoffrey Norris - Gramophone magazine - June 2012
