About

"In 1990, Hugo Reyne and his period-instrument ensemble La Simphonie du Marais recorded and Harmonia Mundi published what was not exactly the "complete" Symphonies for the King's Suppers of Michel-Richard Delalande, but, with 5 hours of music filling 4 CDs, the best thing to be had thus far - and still now...

it was 5 hours of sheer enjoyment, thanks to his skilful instrumentations (the manuscripts come in the form of two- or three-part scores with hardly any indication of instrumentation, so it falls on each interpreter to provide his own), his free use of percussion instruments in the dance numbers, adding great color and dynamism, and his genuine sense of authentic style and phrasings...

But the good news now is that one doesn't need to settle for less anymore: Harmonia Mundi has announced, for August, the reissue of the complete set, Delalande Complete Symphonies, and at budget price. For those who'd still be on a diet of music feasting, this CD of selections, in this edition or in its original guise, depending on market price, remains the choice." - Amazon.com review
