A tremendous selection of arias, wonderfully interpreted and stunningly sung. Excellent orchestration too. A real gem of a C.D. I recomend it highly.

Where Tragediennes (vol.1) was a powerful collection of typical French baroque vocal music, this piece is a little bit more romantically orientated. It doesn't have the typical harpsichord sound in every piece, but indeed the faster-than-you-can-keep-up-with-string music. Gens' interpretation is nicely done. Pronouncement very well to be understood, something that especially French people tend to forget. Gens' voice is at her best like usual. Her full resonans relaxes me every time and gives me energy when I need to perform myself in my vocal studies. You love her voice, you love her energetic performance, buy it. You don't like baroque? Maybe you should try this before you buy vol.1, even Rameau's Palatin's you'll like (great copper).

HASH(0x90110ee8) out of 5 stars From Rameau to Berlioz! 27 April 2013
By Louise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In this second volume of the tragic heroine we have the beautiful voice of Veronique Gens bringing tragic heroines to life. The compositions in this much shorter volume include Gluck: 1714-1786 Sacchini: 1730-1786, Piccinni: 1728-1800 Andre Gretry:1741-1813 Rameau: 1683-1764 Cherubini:1760-1842 Arriaga:1806-1826 and of course Berlioz: 1803-1869.
Once again the music is in the Baroque style. Jean-Philippe Rameau was born in Dijon in 1683 and was one of the most important French composer of the Baroque era. Most of the music in these two volumes Tragediennes and Tragediennes 2 are played in the film (Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst) Rameau replaced Jean-Baptiste Lully as the dominant composer of French opera. He was also the leading French composer for the harpsichord of his time.
Christoph Willibald Ritter Von Gluck was born in Berching and died in Vienna. Gluck moved to Paris. He wrote eight operas for the Parisian stage. He was credited with bringing about revolution in French opera. However Gluck had a poor reception of his Echo et Narcise. He left Paris in disgust and returned to Vienna and died there.
Hector Berlioz was a French Romantic Composer. He is best known for his compositions Symphonie fantastique and Grande messe de morts. (Requiem) In 1831 Berlioz moved to Rome but found the city distasteful and moved back to Paris. He wrote Symphonie Fantastique in Paris. After 1830 Berlioz had a hard time trying to achieve recognition for his music in France. In 1842 Berlioz traveled to Brussels. Berlioz traveled to England and even Russia.
Princess Sayn-Wittgenstein suggested a new opera. It became the famous Les Troyens (The Trojans) This was an opera with a libretto based on Four of Virgil's Aeneid. Les Troyens was dropped by the Paris opera with the excuse that it was to expensive to stage. It was replaced by Wagner's Tannhanser.
This is a shorter selection of unheard French Baroque music. The music by these composers is beautiful. With the beautiful voice of Veronique Gens the voices of the tragic heroine can be heard in the twenty-first century.

Impressive recording!! The duet Gens/Rousset manages to make even better than during their previous colaboration (Tragédiennes vol. 1). Véronique Gens is in full ownership of her capacities and C. Rousset's orchestra never sounded so good, his Berlioz and Cherubini's are amazing!! No doubt one of the year's best disc!!

HASH(0x90427078) out of 5 stars Exceptional artistry 7 Jan. 2014
By Ilmusico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Veronique Gens has recorded a wide history of French operatic music in each of her three superb Tragediennes discs. From baroque music through Berlioz she sings superbly with rich tone, superb diction, and a sure sense of character. Everything shed does is uncommonly absorbing.

A friend recommended this CD and the 1st and 3rd discs in the set, and I am very pleased with Ms. Gens' mastery of difficult (and beautiful!) works.

HASH(0x903e99a8) out of 5 stars Not enough material for a second volume 3 Jan. 2010
By Constantin Declercq - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Almost 20 minutes of orchestral interludes is too much for a disc of arias (1/3 of the total timing).
-----
Les airs sont judicieusement choisis et ils sont interprétés avec élégance et expressivité. Le seul défaut -mais il est de taille quand il s'agit d'un disque de récitals- est qu'il y a une vingtaine de minutes d'interludes orchestraux, ce qui fait presque un tiers de la durée totale du disque. N'y avait-il pas assez d'airs pour faire un deuxième volume sufffisamment consistant ?
