 Wonderful Listening Adventure November 13, 2019 By Patricia W. (Greenville, WI) See All My Reviews "I first heard Collard's rendition of this work on WPR and was just blown away by it. Collard is such a champion of works by French composers and represents them very well with his sensitive and highly musical performances. This particular CD of this beautiful work is no exception. Beautifully played!!! So glad to know this wonderful work." Report Abuse
