    His two piano concertos are absolutely beautiful, they make me laugh, they make me weep, and they make me think - not to mention the surprising moments of nobleness and even majesty, such as the brass in the Allegretto of 'in C♯ minor'. I knew his voice to be to my liking even before these two, but they have now solidifed and remarkably strengthened this conception. I'll definitely be getting to know him better.

    Poulenc actually playing Satie's Gymnopedie #1: He is the performer, not the composer. Some people have tagged their music by performer instead of by composer, hence why it shows up here

    The second movement from the Piano Concerto sounds like Tonite it Shows from Mercury Rev. :D

    Gymnopedie No. 1 is by Eric Satie, not Poulenc!!!

    I think whoever composed the Apocalypse now soundtrack must have listened to his Concerto for Organ. Quite a few similarities

    Such a great composer, I particularly love his organ concerto and his sinfonietta

    Everything he writes is so damned perfect :) The violin sonata is one of the most perfect things in existence, in my opinion. Beautiful, haunting, angry, dissonant yet melodic - simply perfect. And very definitely in my top 5 violin sonatas (the others being Prok 1, Enescu 3, Franck and about 50 others - as is how it is when there is such a wealth of "back catalogue")

    French pronunciation sounds a lot like 'poo-long'. You don't actually make a harsh 'kuh' sound at the end. Just say poolong and deaden the 'ng' sound quickly. It'll sound pretty much right

    Hm, for those who are able to read the International Phonetic Alphabet it's quite simple: [pulɛ̃k], but the main problem is, I think, that there is no sound as the French [ɛ̃] in English. The one English open-mid front unrounded vowel [ɛ] is quite different from the French two, especially from the [ɛ̃]... So maybe "Pool-Ahnk" is really not so bad. I would have said "Pool-Unc" though, with "unc" as in "uncle", but with a long vowel...

    There's nothing like the Organ Concerto after a lousy day at the office. But you need to turn it up LOUD (sorry neighbors).

    "but I'm an uneducated honkey" An affliction so many of us suffer from :-( Mr. Poulenc: your choral music kicks ass...
