Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

An attractive and neglected area of 20th-century repertoire gets its due on this CD that toasts French composers and their delightful wind trios.

On its second outing for Cedille Records, The Chicago Chamber Musicians — in this instance, a subset comprising oboist Michael Henoch, clarinetist Larry Combs, and bassoonist William Buchman — perform eight sparkling wind trios composed expressly for that instrumentation in the 1930s and 1940s by Paul Pierné (not his better-known cousin, Gabriel), Canteloube, Ibert, Milhaud, Tansman, Auric, and Françaix.

"The airy delicacies on this new CD exude traditional Gallic spirit: clear textures, brilliant colors, and sparkling wit," says producer James Ginsburg.
