Product Description

André-Ernest-Modeste Grétry was the greatest French composer of opéra-comique in the eighteenth century. His librettist for Le Magnifique, Jean-Michel Sedaine, took a tale by La Fontaine and fashioned it into a compelling libretto. Grétry responded with an outstanding score, including one of the first programmatic overtures in musical history. His expressive love music, and extended preludes and postludes, add to the theatrical variety of this important and varied opera.

Opera Lafayette 1 Aug. 2013
By ECH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At the recommendation of a fellow music lover, I ordered this Gretry CD. It was so beautiful I quickly added the Opera Lafayette's recording of Sacchini also: even better! If ever I am in Washington, which is the Opera Lafayette's home base, I will definitely try to arrange my visit during a performance.

AS LIGHT AS A FRENCH SOUFFLE. 8 Mar. 2013
By Alfredo R. Villanueva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
AND JUST AS DELIGHTFUL. I MUST CONFESS I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE COMPOSER, THE PIECE OR THE PERFORMERS, YET ALL OF THEM IMPRESSED ME WITH THEIR PROFESSIONALISM AND THE SHEER BEAUTY OF THIS FEATHER LIGHT BEL CANTO CONCOCTION. EMILIANO GONZALEZ TORO IS A TRUE REVELATION AS IS ELIZABETH GALILEO. KUDOS TO THIS RISING YOUNG STARS.

superbly musical 5 Jan. 2013
By amazon user - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are few operas that you don't have to be an opera lover to love. This is one of few. Tunes that'll you'll hum, sing or dance to. Pretty classical backbone.

Another minor but enjoyable Gretry 3 Dec. 2013
By Albert MacSwigart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The plot is amusing and the music is ingratiating. Not a masterpiece but a chestnut worth listening too. There's no enclosed libretto, but it can be downloaded free online--a good idea which I hope other recording companies will emulate, especially if it can contribute to lowering costs and price. One quibble about the Naxos download: it is formated to print out in standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch pages. I tried, without success, to reformat it so it could be folded into the LP case. Obviously, this could be taken care of at the source.
