Product Description

This collection of five operas, and a rarely performed grand motet, offers a glimpse into the magnificent output of one of the leading French composers of the Baroque era. Jean-Philippe Rameau is renowned for his use of melody, particularly in the operatic field and this 11-DVD set brings together some of the most lavish and splendid productions of his work, with some of the leading exponents of early music performance.

Review

Conductor William Christie responds to Rameaus varied and colourful score with élan, and Édouard Locks choreography a version of classical ballet, deconstructed and then pumped with amphetamines is breathtaking. --Classic FM
