What they say

“a good way to get to know the repertoire and would be ideal for performance” “Chanson de Matin and Chanson de Nuit: These two volumes of well presented pieces introduce a variety of music written in the 20th century. … The choice of pieces is rather good and I am sure it will be enjoyed by the players. … They are a good way to get to know the repertoire and would be ideal for performance. Do look out for the four further volumes which are part of the same series.”
Julia Goebr, News and Views, ESTA, Autumn 2006
