If you're not familiar with Poulenc's music here is a good place to start. Although he stands broadly within the romantic tradition there are many musical surprises here and some spicy harmonies, having absorbed and blended in the influence of more radical composers of the time such as Ravel and Stravinsky. Particularly charming are the two piano concertos on the first disc and the music generally has a distinctly light French feel and touch to it, although this may also have something to do with him having been gay. On the whole I would say the first disc is the more enjoyable, whilst the performances and sound throughout both are excellent. very enjoyable

I bought this CD primarily for listening to Poulenc's Piano Concerto which I had heard on Classic FM. This said, I enjoyed listening to the rest of the tracks on both CDs. Good value for money. Recommended.
