Product Description

Product Description

This recording of the Poème Harmonique revitalizes Charpentier's and Lully's Te Deum, two magnificent pieces of sacred music celebrating the Sun King's victory and recovery. Lully, who was of Italian origin, found the essence and style of French art, while Charpentier gave the emotion and composition methods he had learned from the Italians to the music of his country.
This is the story of two musicians, two countries, two aesthetics, and two fundamental stakes. Lully became a lauded composer, outshining Charpentier and relegating him to an undeserved subpar position.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The French baroque has always suffered in comparison with its German,English and Italian counterparts. This was largely the fault of Italian-born Jean-Baptiste Lully, who ran a veritable musical empire at Versailles during the reign of Louis XIV ("l'État, c'est moi") and under whom an endless series of pot-boilers were produced for the endless entertainments of Le Roi Soleil. However, among all the ordinary, there are quite a few gems. Here are two of them. The Te Deums of Lully and Charpentier ("the Eurovision tune") are splendid works, here given a splendid performance. I am thankful that the tendency to try to confer on these works a Bach-like solemnity is gone, and that they are now played in a light and lively fashion. Vincent Dumestre, his soloists, choir and orchestra do a great job here.

Lully's Te Deum will always be remembered as the only known occasion in which a conductor killed himself with a baton. While conducting a performance and banging time with a heavy staff, Lully hit his foot, refused to have an amputation, as it would have ruined his dancing career, and died of gangrene some weeks later. I notice that Vincent Dumestre doesn't use a baton...

5.0 out of 5 stars Religious political music of the first order. 22 Feb. 2014
By John H. Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
We get two approaches to it and are able to compare the two composers. To my mind Charpentier's version is the better. I am not a fan of religious music in general, but this is the exception to the rule. That is due largely to the Sun King's vision expressed here in music, not architecture or decorative art.
