Product description

This recording of Rameaus Les Fêtes de Polymnie (1745), directed by György Vashegyi, features Aurélia Legay, Emöke Barath, Mathias Vidal, and the incomparable Véronique Gens in the various vocal roles that appear in the works Prologue and three Entrées. Rameau, aided by his reformist librettist Louis de Cahusac, conjured up in addition to sparkling arias and recitatives a dazzling mosaic of intermèdes, passacailles, chaconnes and descriptive symphonies interspersed with vivid choral contributions, delivered with taste and aplomb by the Purcell Choir and the Orfeo Orchestra.
