HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Hector Berlioz – L’Enfance Du Christ (Davis)

front-small-boxset
This is another fine pearl in this chain called “Davis-Berlioz-Cycle”.
Colin Davis, currently the grand old man of Berlioz conductors, has recorded the French romantic’s L’Enfance du Christ an amazing three times: first on L’oiseau-Lyre LPs (not issued on CD), then this one on Philips (frequently issued on LP and CD), and later on LSO Live (issued on CD with super audio surround sound capabilities). While not perhaps the most emotional Berlioz conducer in history, Davis’ more measured approach suits the more meditative L’Enfance. All three of his recordings are quite fine, but the sound quality gets slightly better with each newer edition. This sounds just splendid.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Erato) Jean-Philippe Rameau – Les Boréades (Gardiner)

front-small-boxsetWonderful ! Many thanks Jean-Luc for this beauty
Even for a baroque opera, Les Boreades had a bleak history. It was Rameau’s last opera, composed when he was in his eighties, and when he died before the scheduled premiere, another opera was substituted, and Les Boreades went unheard. It was performed once in concert in 1770 in Lille, and then not again until 1963. John Eliot Gardiner brought it to new life in 1974, leading to this recording.
