Bought this for the excellent and totally bewitching performance of the Organ Concerto. For the rest, Disc 2 is particularly pleasing. I really liked Aubade and the Sinfonietta. The other keyboard concertos will need more time but there's no denying their zest and playfulness.

A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good performance of very attractive Poulenc Concertos 15 May 2012
By jt52 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 1990 Virgin release includes three very attractive and interesting concertos by Francis Poulenc. The first two, the Concert champetre (1928) for harpsichord and orchestra and the Organ Concerto (1938), are archetypal examples of Poulenc's interwar neoclassical styles, with heavy references to baroque music in these two cases. The third piece included, the Piano Concerto (1949) still has many remnants of the neoclassical style but is more expansive and more modern in a non-acerbic way. This Piano Concerto's opening has a melody that is among the most beautiful I have heard. Up there with the beginning of the Rachmaninoff 3rd Concerto, you will want to hear this fine piece for that theme alone.

The disc features fine soloists and, in fact, they show up Richard Hickox and his City of London Sinfonia to an extent. This happens most clearly in the Piano Concerto, where the soloist, the excellent French pianist Jean-Bernard Pommier, presents a nuanced yet dramatic rendition, more vivid than Hickox's accompaniment. The harpsichord soloist in the Concert champetre, Maggie Cole, also delivers a strong performance. I compared Hickox's interpretation of the Organ and Piano concerti with Georges Pretre's classic recordings. Pretre takes the music faster, and enhances the drama to produce a more exciting and alive performance. I don't want to be too critical: Hickox and the City of London orchestra do a good job, which I have enjoyed, but I think there are some flaws there.

One other minus is the recorded sound, which is mediocre, similar to Hickox's contemporaneous Virgin recording of the Poulenc Gloria and Stabat Mater.

This is just very worthwhile music that I think you will truly enjoy. The disc features a performance that is pretty good with some defects. 4 stars.
