Poulenc - The Complete Chamber Music 2CD set. 1999
Poulenc: Sextet for piano and wind quintet, Sonata for Two Clarinets, Sonata for Horn, Trumpet & Trombone, Cello Sonata, Clarinet Sonata, Sarabande for solo guitar, Villanelle for piccolo (pipe) and piano
Elégie for horn and piano, Trio for piano, oboe and bassoon, Sonata for Clarinet and Bassoon, Flute Sonata,
'Entrancing. It's hard to select the choicest treasures from this jewel box of Poulenc's most witty and vivacious, hauntingly melodic and touchingly heartfelt music, especially when it is played with such effervescence and devotion as here. The two masterpieces are the Sextet for Piano and Winds (1932) and the delectable "Mozartian" Trio for Piano, Oboe and Bassoon, played with dashing elan and soulful lyricism by the pianist Ian Brown and the Nash's brilliant wind principals..there is rapture, elation, zany high spirits in all of this music, dazzlingly played by the Nash Ensemble. Buy, buy, buy!' (The Sunday Times)
