Notes and Editorial Reviews
Third volume of the Musical portraits series (after Pierre de la Rue and César Franck), this 5-CD box set is dedicated to André-Modeste Grétry. You will find in this box set some highlights of different operas (La caravane du Caire, L'amant jaloux, Le jugement de Midas), his Six quartets op. 3 published in Paris in 1773 and some adaptations of parts of his operas (by Mozart, Franck, Godefroid or Vitzthumb). Every work in here demonstrates his accomplished artistry in melodic intonation and in catching the audience's attention.
