Description
In this program of modern French music, the hauntingly beautiful Quartet for piano and strings no. 2 in G Minor, op. 45, by Gabriel Fauré is succeeded by the Octet for clarinet, horn, bassoon, and strings by Jean Françaix and Les citations by Henri Dutilleux (which honors both tenor Peter Pears and fellow French composer Jehan Alain, who died heroically during a voluntary reconnaissance mission defending Saumur in World War II). Founded in 1967, the Esbjerg Ensemble was Denmark's first professional chamber ensemble.

"[Françaix's] octet for clarinet, horn, bassoon, string quartet and double bass starts with a rather breathtaking stab at serious mood-setting. The clarinet and bassoon alternate autumnal solos, wistful and nostalgic, in a way which suggests the composer is letting his guard down…. The old-fashioned waltz which concludes the Octet, with sliding violins and agile dancing feet, is a moment of sheer inspiration."—Musicweb International
