Concertino da camera, for alto saxophone and 11 instruments

Strong composition.

Again, I'll point out Ibert's jaunty solo String Quartet, as a better place to go than the Francaix and the Tailleferre, and almost as invigorating as the Roussel.
Very fine work, and this is a great recording of both that, the trio for violin, cello and harp, as well as several smaller pieces. All very fine!

I've been playing some works (Divertissement, Symphonie marine, Féerique, Escales, Suite symphonique 'Paris', Bacchanale, Concertino da camera -right now-), I've enjoyed all of them. They have lots of fun, with a mysterious touch in certain slow passages. They are uncomplicated, kind of irreverent, highly entertaining. His style is very close to Honegger (which I enjoy to some extent). So far, he has given me a very good impression.

Re: L'Isle Ibert PIANO MUSIC, much like Francaix

Ibert's Piano Music got short shrift as I was looking into it. It's so simple that it really takes a lot of charm to pull it off, and great sound! There are only two main exponents, one on MarcoPolo/Naxos, which I can't imagine having great sound.

However, perusing YT, I have found his PM to be quite charming, if played that way. It all reminds one of Francaix's PM, and I think Francaix might be a little more on the virtuoso side, but, if there were a perfectly presented Ibert recital, I think many would at least enjoy his style of wallpaper.
