Catalogue Number: 01X016
Label: Chateau de Versailles
Description: Les Paladins (1760) would be Rameau’s last work performed in public. Inspired by the triumph of his other comedy, Platée, Rameau adds emphasis and excess, makes the orchestra gleam and the singers leap, with sharp turns in the comic tone and magnificent sentimental passages. French-English libretto. Sandrine Piau, Marie-Catherine Gillet (sopranos), Mathias Vidal (tenor), La Chapelle Harmonique; Valentin Tournet.
