Summary
In this new recording, Le Concert Des Nations, under the direction of Jordi Savall, takes an intimate journey through the world of Rameau's little-known universe. A quiet man to which we know little about, Rameau's lush scenic interpretations are presented here on original period instruments. From Rameau's craft of blending vocals with orchestra, his lyric tragedies and his haunting Pastorales, there is something for every listener here. The decadent times of early 18th century crossed with the tragedy of life and loss run as concurrent themes throughout. The selection of works and musical integrity presented on this recording act as a masterclass in individual and ensemble playing, sound, articulation, ornamentation, improvisation, phrasing, dynamics and characteristics of dance and tempo in the performance of orchestral music at the time of Rameau
