Catalogue Number: 11K019
Reference: GCD C81103
Description: Another reissue of orchestral music from stage works by Rameau, with Acante (1751) a lyrical Pastoral héroïque and Les Fêtes (1739) an opéra-ballet. Rameau spent his career making the orchestra as important as vocalists so collectors can buy "opera without words" releases like this without the slightest shred of guilt! Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century; Frans Brüggen. Original 1998 release.
