I can't agree with the American reviewer below as this record seems to me to fill in some very useful gaps. All the music has great appeal and is aurally very pleasing in the best French tradition. I didn't know any of the works except the Fauré, which I like a good deal. It seems quite wrong to think dismissively of his only essay in the genre! The Saint-Saëns will surely appeal to those who like his other concertante works and has the same felicitous scoring. The revelation on the disc, however, is the Canteloube. I've never been particularly fond of the Chants d'Auvergne but here he has a lyricism that leaves me with the feeling of a discovery. Philippe Graffin plays everything with great soul; he's the opposite of a salon-type of player and has that great nobility of sound so characteristic of Menuhin. This serves the music very well, as it does in his two other superb Saint-Saëns discs, also on Hyperion.
