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

Canadian pianist Lucille Chung – acclaimed for her “stylish and refined performances” by Gramophone magazine, “combining vigour and suppleness with natural eloquence and elegance” – appears as a soloist on this new recording, performing Poulenc’s Improvisations and Novelettes before being joined by her duo partner (and husband) Alessio Bax for L’embarquement pour Cythère, the Sonata for Four Hands and Concerto for Two Pianos.
