5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, 13 July 2004
This review is from: Le Roi Danse (Audio CD)
This album is very strong in character and very appealing. It has comparatively slow tempi and a massive sound, which distinguishes it from a lot of recordings of this repertoire. It keeps growing on you as you discover new fantastic pieces as you keep listening to it. It shows that french baroque from the time of the Sun King is more melodic, rythmic, galant, pompous and indeed powerful than contemporary baroque from elsewhere. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect introduction to French Baroque, 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le Roi Danse (Audio CD)
I bought this in July 2012 on a whim,and it has indeed opened my ears to the wonders of French Baroque.If you like the majesty of the glorious music of Handel,you will love this CD which contain the important works by Jean-Baptist Lully; it does "grow" on you as you keep finding gems in the crafstmanship within the music, particularly in the rhythm, but also the emotion within it.Have bought many a Lully CDs ever since, and have also explored music by Rameau and Charpentier.I recommend this CD 100%.

Love this soundtrack - beautiful baroque music 300 years old and still rocks! Listen to it hundreds of time and still enjoying it - regal, powerful, inspiring, more than 75 minutes of great music by Musica Antiqua Koln and a very informative and well research booklet, with colourful photos comes with the CD as well - a great bargain for any price!

My goodness, what an absolutely wonderful cd! I totally love the music of Lully - he just seems to sum up the court of the Sun King so beautifully - powerful, melodic, soft, forceful - all combined in one single piece. I've never seen the film that this cd relates to, but it appears to be about Louis XIV, Lully and Moliere, and their relationships.

The music on the cd is predominantly Lully, although there is also music by Jacques Cordier, Michel Lambert and Robert Cambert. All absolutely beautifully played by Musica Antiqua Koln under Reinhard Goebel. I've pretty much played this cd nonstop for several days now, and I really can't see me ever getting tired of it. All the elements of the French court are embodied in this wonderful music, and the ensemble's renditions of these wonderful pieces are just magnificent.

Absolutely love it! Totally recommended for anybody who loves Baroque music - you will not regret getting this - it's worth more stars than I can give it here!
