With a lightness of touch and gift for just the right balance of wit and sincerity, the debonair music of Jean Françaix was composed to above all give pleasure.

Françaix left a huge trove of delightfully ‘French’ works for every conceivable combination of instruments. His cor anglais quartet sets the plangent (and sometimes sprightly) voice of the instrument against a Martini-dry string background. Sydney Symphony Principal Alexandre Oguey is the virtuoso soloist.

From only three instruments, Mozart builds one of his most momentous chamber works. This Divertimento is no mere entertainment, it’s one of the greatest string trio compositions in the repertoire, where, in the words of one critic, ‘every note is a contribution to spiritual and sensuous fulfillment in sound’.
