Poulenc was a skilled pianist, cultivating a style of playing characterised by colourfulness and clarity, possessing an ear for melody that distinguished him as France’s finest song composer since Fauré.

★★★★★ Lucille Chung proves a fantastic Poulenc advocate… A release to savour – Classical Ear

For me the most attractive piece here is Poulenc’s own arrangement for two pianos of his Concerto for two pianos. The slow movement alone is worth the price of this exceptional disc – Classic FM

A very special disc indeed – MusicWeb International
