      Besides several prominent works such as Escales, Angélique and the Flute Concerto, there is a rich, little-known Jacques Ibert catalog, including these works for winds.

      Ibert possessed the gift of constantly renewed melodic invention and an outpouring of felicitous ideas.

      This is the fourth album by the now-renowned Ensemble Initium, joined by the mezzo Karine Deshayes, cellist Henri Demarquette and the young conductor Clément Mao-Takacs, founder and director of the Secession Orchestra.
