This charming double album pays tribute to a very French institution - the Paris Instrumental Quintet, renamed following World War Two after harpist Pierre Jamet. All the works on the second disc were written for, or commissioned by, the Quintet, and recorded soon after their premières, so that this release is an important historical document as well as a very civilised listening experience. And sooo French!
