Review: Erato's Imperishable Poulenc Complete Works

An essential set for all serious record collectors and lovers of 20th century music, this mostly superb collection of Poulenc’s complete works allows us to consider his achievement whole, and in so doing makes the best possible case for considering him a genius of the first rank. No texts or translations, unfortunately, but don’t let that dissuade you. Poulenc’s music has more sheer character per bar than that of many a more famous name, and you owe it to yourself to get to know him.
