No artist has been more alive to the enjoyment of life’s pleasures than Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919). His paintings reflect a delight in the existence of the world and its beauty, expressed in colours drenched with light and sunshine. On this CD, the world of Renoir is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. Inside, Hugh Griffith provides explanatory notes on his life and musical environment.
