Description: Musicologist, critic and journalist who coined the term "Les Six", Collet's academic work was in Renaissance Spanish music which led to his collecting and harmonizing Iberian folk songs. These are just some of the fruits of his research, authentic as can be and some pretty catchy - try forgetting the Zacatin in the Album d'Espagne! Pascal Gallet (piano).
