On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the composerís birth, six internationally acclaimed soloists present a collection of music written for wind instruments by Francis Poulenc.

From the beginning on this new recording on SACD, the music grips us from the very first measure; the incomparable combination of breathtaking virtuosity and playful lightness as well as song-like melodies and deep emotion qualifies this anti-Romantic rebel of the 1920s as a modern classic.

Poulenc was well known for his skill with writing music for wind instruments and the collection on this CD brings together a treat for all lovers of his music.

Comprised of his Sextet for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn and piano; Sonata for flute and piano; Sonata for oboe and piano; Sonata for clarinet and piano and the Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano, the repertoire is both diverse and enjoyable. Recorded in MDGís high quality SACD sound, this is Poulencís wind music at its best.

Ensemble Confoederatio:
- Rute Fernandes (flute)
- Maria Sournatcheva (oboe)
- Sťrgio Pires (clarinet)
- Lionel Pointet (horn)
- Axel Benoit (bassoon)
- Benjamin Engeli (piano)
