Catalogue Number: 05I027
Description: Early works with which Rameau honed his talents in preparation for his middle-life debut on the stage, the mini-comedy (22 minutes) Les Amants (around 1714) and its shorter companions of 1704 are amiable companions to a Burgundian drinking-song of 1707. Campra's renunciation of love is equally light-hearted. French-English texts. Peter Harvey (baritone), Philippa Hyde (soprano), London Baroque.
