Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (HM) Jean-Philippe Rameau – Anacréon

front-small-boxset
I am a fan of baroque music, but must admit that the big French operas can’t hold my interest all the way through. What we have here is a small comedie-ballet by Rameau which is essentially a small one act opera on the subject of Anacreon. There are moments of rustic pleasantness, an apparent tempest complete with lightning, and Bacchanalian revels. Rameau was a master of orchestral colour, and provides a huge range of emotion over the five scenes of this work.
