Jean Françaix’ declared motto of always having aimed to create "musique pour faire plaisir" partially conceals the great variability and frequent inscrutability of the music created by this composer, born in Le Mans in 1912. Françaix succeeded in finding and consolidating his own style at an early stage and became known almost overnight in 1932:

According to the critic Heinrich Strobel, this work communicated the impression of "fresh water gushing forth from the source with the elegant originality of all natural elements – and at the same time appears as the creation of an artist with a clarity and awareness seldom observed in our time." He retained his mastery of composition which effervesced with ingenious ideas and musical humour and his ability to combine musical grace and irony up to an advanced age.

2012 sees the 100th birthday of Jean Françaix. In an anniversary box, WERGO has compiled selected works from original recordings (CDs and LP from our program), showing the wide range of music by the French composer and pianist.
