ArtistsTempesta di Mare
The comédie-ballet was the brainchild of the French comedic actor, singer, dancer, and playwright Molière. After ten years of collaborating with Lully, a Suite from whose Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme features in Volume 1, he turned to Charpentier. The outcome was Le Malade imaginaire whose fourth performance would prove Molière’s last, as he died on stage.
Scylla et Glaucus is the only stage work by Jean-Marie Leclair, the foremost violinist of his generation and a composer whose late opera shows the clarity of his orchestration and places its focal point on the strings, as one would expect.
Les Fêtes de Polymnie is contemporary with Leclair’s opera but more forward looking in its approach, and
famous for the ingenuity of Rameau’s colourful orchestration, particularly obvious in the overture.
