Product description

Product Description

In a stunning world premiere recording, music director and conductor Nicholas McGegan, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale, and an international cast of French Baroque opera stars present Jean-Philippe Rameaus original 1745 version of Le Temple de la Gloire, with libretto by Voltaire. Presented as a fully staged opera in April 2017, the three sold out performances enjoyed universal critical acclaim from some of the worlds leading publications. The original manuscript had not been performed since 1745 and is housed at U.C. Berkeleys Jean Gray Hargrove Music Library. Originally written to honour King Louis XV and commemorate the Battle of Fontenoy, the version of this ballet héroïque that has been heard up until now is the second version which was substantially changed by Rameau to appease the King and Parisian tastes. Voltaires original libretto, used in these performances and recording, is a philosophical reform of opera: an allegory set around the idea of the temple of glory with moral and political overtones making this original version not only more powerful but uniquely relevant even today. In the words of Nicholas McGegan, 'Its extravagant, spectacular beyond description. Its a wonderful mix. Incredibly ornate music ... the whole kitchen sink of the orchestra, deliberately exotic and jangly, with trumpets, even bagpipes'.
