All the Poulenc I've heard are thrift-shop LPs (and that only the Stabat Mater and piano concerto). Don't remember much about it other than that I enjoyed them, but they went onto the shelf to be neglected until I get to them in my LP transfers (currently stalled on Monteverdi and it's unclear when I'll resume as I have a shitload of new music).
I really don't have the language to talk about classical music other than "it's good" or "it sucks". It's hard to refer to specific moments and even the details of a performance is beyond me (that said, the Brendel Haydn is very much not a period performance, but he has clear lines and a sense of structure and never lets the "modern" stuff overwhelm the music). It's much easier to point to Miles Davis' Nefertiti and say that the second side is more conventional than the first, I can't get into "Riot"; and that the innovative title track, "Fall", and "Madness" are my highlights the second spin round. And Tony Williams is awesome on it).
Why are you subjecting yourself to six more hours of music you can't stand?
