Produktbeskrivelse

Luigi Cherubini, born in Florence in 1760, enjoyed early success with his operas in Italy and won fame in France with his music dramas. Like Meyerbeer, he specialized in opera. True, he wrote songs and cantatas too, but they were soon forgotten. The present CD turns to largely unknown works in the form of four French cantatas and choral pieces, none of them in any way inferior to the better known repertoire. Whether inspired by Greek tradition and mythology or by the "revolutionary heroes" of his stage music for three choirs "La mort de Mirabeau", Cherubini never fails to give the sorrow, rage and pain of his subjects a truly personal dimension.
