Germaine Tailleferre (1892-1983) came of age in the explosively creative days of 1920s Paris. Well-known as the only female member of Les Six, the group of composers which included Darius Milhaud, Louis Durey, Georges Auric, Francis Poulenc, and Arthur Honegger, her circle of friends also included Charlie Chaplin, Picasso, Modigliani, Diaghilev, Ravel, Stravinsky, and Monteux. This recording features works originally for solo piano, as well as transcriptions and excerpts from ballets and film scores. The music spans 60 years and represents some of Tailleferre's best and most significant work, some of it rarely played or recorded. Praised by The Boston Globe as "a musical and expressive player" who is "sensitive and poetic, and excels in everything that requires elegance, proportion, balance, taste, and wit," the award-winning Vietnamese American pianist Quynh Nguyen was named one of the "19 Young Stars of Tomorrow" by Musical America. She has performed extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, to wide critical acclaim. The Flower of France marks her debut recording on the Music & Arts label.
