Notes and Editorial Reviews

Renaud (1783) marked Sacchini's debut in Paris. Despite much criticism from the supporters of his rivals Gluck and Piccinni, Renaud was a success and Sacchini became the new favourite of Marie- Antoinette. Encouraged by the public who saw him as one of the finest composers of that time, he enriched the repertoire of the Paris Opéra with several masterpieces. Some of them were staged regularly for many years. Renaud was presented almost without interruption until 1799, and was revived in 1815. This recording has been made at the Arsenal of Metz in October 2012. Renaud (1783) marked Sacchini's debut in Paris.

 pleasant surprise August 31, 2013 By jan j. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "I hesitated to pay the cost for a single CD of an, for me, unknown work. But I trust Rousset. I was surprised with a deluxe packaged 2 CD set in a bound book with accompanying essays and full libretto. The work was full of the charm of the period, beautifully performed. A true delight."
