The chamber music of Poulenc is rather neglected, partly because of the unusual combinations of instruments he often favoured. The London Conchord Ensemble is the perfect group to champion it, and they reveal some treasures, especially in the wind music. The Sextet of 1932 is particularly attractive.

The London Conchord Ensemble understand this [Poulenc's works] completely, working their magic in the bittersweet sonatas for piano and cello, violin, flute, oboe and clarinet, and romping through ensemble works large and small, including his Elégie for horn and piano (written in memory of Dennis Brain) and the irrepressibly gorgeous trio for piano, oboe and bassoon.

An exemplary collection of Poulenc's chamber music (1922-62) recorded 2001-2011......There are other collections...but I am sure you won't go wrong with this newest collection.

No longueurs on these excellent discs: Poulenc’s invention is always sprightly, and the performers are vivified by it; though an outstanding item is the Elégie for Horn and Piano, in memory of Dennis Brain.
— Paul Driver, The Sunday Times, 26 February 2012
All Poulenc's chamber works from the London supergroup....This is an excellent spirited two-CD set encompassing 14 works for various combinations....where Poulenc's typical blend of languid lyricism piquantly perfumed harmony and snook-cocking humour achieved a perfect synthesis. The London Conchord Ensemble manifestly relish what Poulenc has to offer, playing with panache, wit and discreet sensitivity in performances that are a constant joy.
