Francis Poulenc: Musique de chambre

To mark the 50th anniversary of Francis Poulenc's death (1899-1963), Pentaèdre offers a wide range of chamber music by this famous French composer.
Francis Poulenc’s catalogue contains some 200 works, consisting of mostly of vocal music (operas, sacred music, and songs). It also includes many pieces for piano, four concertos, music for the theatre, three ballets, and a dozen works of chamber music. For this recording, Pentaèdre has chosen major chamber music works including the sextet and trio with piano and sonatas for wind instruments.

Pentaèdre is composed of five musicians whose talent, technique, and precision are renowned. Flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon each provide their very specific color to create a rich, unique, and homogeneous sonority that is the ensemble’s distinctive trade mark. Canadian pianist David Jalbert joins the group for the works with piano.
