Produktbeskrivelse

Glossa devotes it latest Rameau offering to a further ballet héroïque, 'Les Fêtes de Polymnie', directed by György Vashegyi, featuring Aurélia Legay, Emöke Barath and Mathias Vidal, led by the incomparable Véronique Gens in various vocal roles that appear in the Prologue and the three Entrées of this work.

Composed in 1745, an annus mirabilis for France, Rameau, aided by his reformist librettist Louis de Cahusac’s preferences for choruses and ballets, conjured up – in addition to sparkling arias and recitatives – a dazzling mosaic of intermèdes, passacailles, chaconnes and descriptive symphonies interspersed with vivid choral contributions, which the Purcell Choir and the Orfeo Orchestra deliver, with refinement and spirit, on this new recording of the festivities. As with the recent 'Les Fêtes de l’Hymen et de l’Amour' (conducted by Hervé Niquet), this modern-day revindication of 'Les Fêtes de Polymnie' is matched by an essay about the score (placed within its historical context) from Benoît Dratwicki of the supporting institution for this recording, the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles.
