Apart from 'Sémélé', 'Alcione' is the only opera composed by Marin Marais. The first performance took place at the Théâtre du Palais Royal in Paris on February 18, 1706. Shortly after that, Marin Marais decided to gather the most beautiful tunes, including the famous 'Tempest', into four suites.

Le Concert des Nations and Jordi Savall fully reveal the colours of this vivid score. As you might expect, Alia Vox have granted this Heritage reissue a state-of-the-art multichannel remastering and a richly documented booklet.
