Francaix CD details
A New Year, a new review

The distinguished reviewer Ivan March, writing in the January 2015 edition of Gramophone Magazine, says:

"Jean Françaix's chamber music, whose great charm is difficult to analyse, is delightfully French, with its wit, lightness of touch, quixotic changing of moods, and blending of colours.

"It is most sympathetically played here, helped by a believable balance, with each wind group felicitously blended.

"Altogether a most infectious and enjoyable collection."
