Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is a 2 CD set with a bonus CD-Rom containing a libretto and synopsis.
"Both the 'earthly' leads are superb: Natalie Dessay's secure, clear coloratura is well employed as the nagging wife, Eurydice, and one fells genuinely sorry for her hapless husband, Orphée, amiably characterized by Yann Beuron...From the opening bars, Minkowski's approach is apparent in the sparkling, crystal-clear textures, and he propels the opera along at a tremendous pace and with a bouncing rhythmic bite, matched by the exceptionally lively cast."
