Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his earlier recordings of 'grands motets' by Jean-Baptiste Lully and Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Olivier Schneebeli, directing Les Pages et les Chantres du Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles and the orchestra Musica Florea of Prague, has emphasized the dramatic element of these vast sacred canvases. This time, moving from the altar to the stage, he invites us to join him on a personal itinerary through the tragedies lyriques of the King's Suritendant of Music. From lovers' metamorphoses to battles and scenes in the underworld, this programme offers a chance to discover all the enchantments of Baroque music theatre, in a panoply of colourful excepts from 'Isis', 'Amadis', 'Alceste', 'Persée' and 'Armide'.
