Reviews

Behind this bumper box lies the presiding genius of Pascal Rogé, whose tender whimsy and incisive wit have the measure of St Francis' bittersweet sensibility - and its deep-veined melancholy.
Paul Riley, BBC Music Magazine, 2/1/2006

'Pascal Rogé (piano), et al Poulenc combined grace and sparkling wit with a rare nobility of utterance, clinging tenaciously to an all-consuming desire for a ‘return to simplicity’. Along with his fellow members of Les Six – Durey, Honegger, Milhaud, Tailleferre and Auric – he enjoyed dabbling in many of the groundbreaking artistic movements of the time including vaudeville, jazz, Cubism, neoclassicism, Dadaism, and Surrealism. The results are plain to hear, particularly in the piano music which ranges from exquisite poetics to knockabout high spirits. Rogé and colleagues play this wonderful music to the manner born and are luxuriously recorded.'
Julian Haylock, Classical FM, 4/1/2006
