Quick Overview

This disc commemorates the centenary of Jean Françaix, (1912-1997), and celebrates his music, written with the stated aim to ‘give pleasure’.

Françaix wrote his first chamber work for winds, the Quartet, in 1933 at the age of 21, and completed his Quintet No.2 more than 50 years later – with a remarkably consistent style marked by lightness and wit.
