5.0 out of 5 stars Lully, Lully!, 23 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lully: Bellérophon [2 CDs + Book] (Audio CD)
I am a big fan of Lully. I don't know what it is about his music and style, but to me it's just the right mix of renaissance simplicity, early baroque and something else. To me this is sublimation of baroque classical music. Luckily for us other composers continued the style invented by Lully, i.e. Delalande, Campra, Clérambault etc.

This is not one of Lully's best. I'm missing some of the awesome themes that can be found in Acis & Galatee, Atys and Armide. It's a relatively unknown piece, but it's still not to be missed if you like this kind of music. It is perfectly directed, performed and the singers are just perfect.

btw the packaging is really cool and the book is a great read. Highly recommended.

This is all so beautiful, the music, artists, recording. I did't play it too loud and it was quite an experience. Hats Off!
