Jean Françaix (1912–97) has long enjoyed a reputation as one of the happier composers, his Gallic charm and breezy good humour obscuring the superb craftsmanship of his writing. Françaix once observed that ‘I live in exile in my own country and am nourished from abroad’ – Plus ça change, he then might have thought, with this album presenting an Hungarian ensemble led by a Canadian conductor on a British label, with two first recordings and a rare hearing for one of his more substantial scores.

 "Beautifully civilised, exceptionally well-written music of immediate appeal and communicability in really excellent performances by this young orchestra and very gifted Canadian conductor. A real find in terms of unfamiliary music and very well presented in typil Toccata style."    *****
