Composers are overlooked for lots of reasons. Some deserve it, but Charles Koechlin emphatically does not. If you think Villa-Lobos invented unusual instrumental combinations, think again. Here are two Septets for very different - some would say eccentric - groups. If you seek music for unusual instruments, here are two Sonatinas for oboe d'amore. And if you want music which gives you the flavour of the open air, listen to his Paysages et Marines (Landscapes and Seascapes) and wonder where the walls of your room have gone!
Both French ensembles are excellent as they advocate the music of their fellow countrymen. This album will not disappoint, try it!more....
