HD-Vinyls 24/192 (EMI) Francis Poulenc – Concert for Harpsichord ‘Champetre’ – Concert For 2 Pianos (Poulenc/Van De Wiele/Février)


Many thanks to Jean-Luc for another amazing gem
The performances of these concertos by Francis Poulenc are amazing. The Concert champetre (1929) was written for Wanda Landowska and was a favorite piece of hers but she never recorded it despite the urgings of Poulenc. This recording of the Concert champetre was made in 1957 with Aimee van de Wiele as soloist, who gives an energetic performance along the lines of Landowska. The Concerto for two pianos (1932) has the composer and Jacques Fevrier as soloists, a combination that could not be more ideal as Poulenc had Fevirer and himself in mind when he wrote the music.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Poulenc, Saint-Saens – Les Animaux Modeles, Le Carnaval des Animaux (Pretre)

 front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this rarity (Poulenc)
In today’s zoological study are include Saint-Saens’ The Carnival of the Animals, without narration, that Pretre leads rather aggressively, and Poulenc’s nearly forgotten ballet, The Model Animals, which doesn’t try to be humorous or to evoke each animal with orchestral effects. It’s in Poulenc’s cheeky mixture of updated Offenbach and Charlie Chaplin movie music, with some undertones of worldly melancholy. If you didn’t know the title, you’d never suspect the work of being zoological.
