Transparency statement - please note: I have not listened to this full recording yet so my advice is based on Amazon's reviews and on personal research . When researching Valentine's Day gift ideas, I spent a lot of time carefully looking for French music that could be of interest to French enthusiasts and this recording  really grabbed my attention - this is why I chose to recommend it.
