Product description

Product Description

Emma Kirkby and London Baroque here return to BIS with a disc of music from the French composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. An almost exact contemporary of François Couperin and only some 15 years older than Rameau, Montéclair was also a composer working in all the genres current at the time, including that of the chamber cantata for one or two voices and strings, dealing mainly with subjects from classical history or mythology. The large majority used French texts with four Italian ones, including La Morte di Lucretia, recorded here.The works The Return of Peace and Le Triomfe de la Constance both illustrate Montéclairs skill at overcoming the challenges of producing a restricted instrumentation that provides effective backcloth for the action. The trumpets celebrating The Return of Peace are quite satisfactorily suggested by unison violins, and the shepherd's bagpipes are alluded to by two bass viols in Le Triomfe de la Constance. Emma Kirkby and London Baroque have previously worked together on BIS with recordings of solo cantatas by Handel that have met with great acclaim.


It's extraordinary what depth of conflicting emotions can be packed into such relatively slight,brief movements-testimony to both their neglected composer and to inspirational performers. Performance ***** Recording **** BBC MUSIC CHORAL & SONG CHOICE --BBC Music Magazine,Nov'11

Kirkby is still peerless in a repertoire she herself is consistantly expanding.Her unflagging study of Baroque practice and her research into the legacy of forgotten composers maintain her pre-eminence.*** --Classic fm Magazine,Nov'11

Kirkby and her long-time collaborators London Baroque bring a wealthof charm,elegence and expertise to these works. --IRR,Oct'11

Emma Kirkby singing french repertoire is a rare thing but her friends London Baroque are steeped in it,and these performances are as stylish as one could wish...Monteclair is certainly worth getting to know. --Gramophone,Jan'12
