This recording of orchestral music by Jean Françaix - personification of the elegant and witty French 'salon' ambience - brings us two ballets scores and the Concertino for piano and orchestra, one of the composer's earliest successes, still one of his best-known compositions, and itself a model of the pithy-yet-polished style Françaix has so come to represent.
