Product description

Product Description

Couperin came from a dynasty of musicians very much in the public eye, starting with the beginning of the reign of Louis XIV. This dynasty would remain important after the death of Francois Couperin, known as Couperin le Grand ('the Great'). Chosen personally by the Sun King for the Chapelle Royale at Versailles, he was quickly forgotten after his death, being eclipsed by Rameau. However history would consider him the most accomplished expression of French genius in the 18th century. Here, the cantata 'Ariane consolée par Bacchus' is unveiled and served by a dream cast led by Christophe Rousset. This first release on the Aparté label is the forerunner of a boxed set to celebrate the occasion of Couperin's 250th birthday. Tracks: 1-6 Ariane consolée par Bacchus, cantata 7-15 Apothéose de Lully 16-22 Apollon persuade Lully et Corelli que la réunion des Goûts français et italien doit faire la perfection de la musique. Essai en forme d'ouverture. 23-29 Le Parnasse ou l'Apothéose de Corelli, 1724 Grande Sonade en trio

Review

GRAMOPHONE EDITOR S CHOICE 'This Ariane consolée par Bacchus, somewhat unusually, is for a baritone. Although best known as an opera singer and recitalist of later repertoire, Stéphane Degout adjusts his voice to the varied pace within the recitatives and expresses words such as douceur in the first Air and the tongue-twisting text of the ritournelle in the final Air with the lightest touch. Moreover, the acoustic of the Eglise Saint-Pierre (Paris) allows us to enjoy both the warmth of his voice and the detail of his fluent ornamentation. The presence of Christophe Coin playing the concertante bass viol part in these tracks adds further to the pleasure to be had from listening to this modern premiere. The remaining works on the disc were recorded in the exceptional acoustic of the former 14th-century monastery Les Dominicains de Haute-Alsace. Couperin s entertaining pair of apotheoses accorded to Lully and Corelli is almost unique in the repertoire because of his acerbic programmatic commentaries, elegantly delivered here by Rousset from the keyboard. These works have been recorded many times but rarely so well. Rousset s vision for his ensemble of oboes, flutes, violins and viol is sublime, as too are his harpsichord realisations. This is a landmark recording to treasure.' --Julie Anne Sadie Gramophone, December 2016

A newly discovered, charming cantata for baritone and continuo is lovingly rendered alongside stylish chamber works in praise of Lully and Corelli. --Oliver Condy - BBC Music Magazine, January 2017
