Each of the five members of wind 'supergroup' Les Vent Français, partnered by pianist Eric le Sage, plays a sonata written by Paul Hindemith in the dramatic years between 1936 and 1943 - compact, lucid and engaging works for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and alto horn. "These Hindemith sonatas are a great asset to the wind repertory," says oboist François Leleux. "Hindemith took a very particular approach to each instrument, with a wonderful sense for it's individual sound."
With top-notch sound, Les Vents Français, with Le Sage’s masterly accompaniments, are the pick of the crop: Vive Les Vents’ Hindemith!

Partnered by the pianist Eric Le Sage, the members of the quintet Les Vents Français, all of them front-rank soloists in their own right, give fabulously fluent performances of pieces that they have probably known since they were students. But it’s the four-movement Tenor Horn Sonata that’s the real treasure here. Vlatković reveals it to be a work of unexpected beauty and depth.
