Description: When Lully and Molière ended their seven-year musical relationship in 1671, the former did all in his power to prevent any future stagings of Molière's plays containing any musical interludes. We have here a selection of the best parts of the intermèdes which the young Charpentier was able to provide on the few occasions he could work with the playwright before his death in 1673. French texts. Romain Champion (countertenor), Vincent Bouchot (tenor), Florean Westphal (bass), La Simphonie du Marais; Hugo Reyne.
