Hexagon Ensemble - Hexagon Plays Poulenc/Saint-Saëns/Roussel/Francaix album download
Hexagon Plays Poulenc/Saint-Saëns/Roussel/Francaix. 3. Divertissement: Andantino. 5. Caprice on Danish & Russian Airs, for flute, oboe, clarinet & piano, Op. 79. Hexagon Ensemble. Trio for oboe, bassoon & piano, FP 43. 6. Lent-Presto.
Hexagon's go-for-broke performance of the title track of this disc, Jean Francaix's Les petits nerveux, sets the tone for a terrific hour of music by some of France's finest composers. Hexagon was a winner of "The Young Concert Artists' International Competition" and here the group plays with wit, panache and a virtuosity that places them in the front ranks of chamber ensembles performing today. Poulenc's artistic credo was as charming as his music.
Orchestra/Ensemble: Hexagon Number of Discs: 1 Recorded in: Stereo Length: 1 Hours 1 Mins. Saint-Saëns' Caprice, written while the composer was on tour in Russia for the czarina, is a strange, meandering piece that never quite manages to cohere-but it still offers the players a chance to show off that lovely, creamy tone. The Poulenc trio features some impressive performances, particularly Finn's extraordinarily crisp delivery in the opening Presto, Dine's gracefully singing tone in the Andante, and Winn's spiky jabs in the concluding Rondo. Albert Roussel's Divertissement flows beautifully, played at a wistful tempo and with seamless lines.
