Francis Poulenc is one of the most remarkable French composers of the 20th century. Inspired by many (Debussy, Satie, his fellow composers of the “Groupe des Six”) he found his essential own voice, an unique blend of French gaiety and a deep, serious and sometimes melancholic feeling. 

These new recordings present Poulenc’s complete chamber music, written for a wide variety of instruments: violin, viola, cello, double-bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, horn, bassoon, English horn and piano: a multi-coloured palette of sonorities, characters and emotions.
