My friend, Ben Opie, sent me a copy of his new CD, French Sonatas, with pianist Peter de Jager. It’s so wonderful. The minute I started listening to the Saint-Saëns I was hooked. Following that I heard Dutilleux, Poulenc, Koechlin and Milhaud. I highly recommend the recording if you can get your hands on it. Maybe Ben can help us out here and fill us in on how to get a copy!

Thank you so much for thinking of me, Ben. It was an honor to listen to you, albeit also quite humbling! :-)
