Notes & Reviews:

First performed at Versailles in 1745, the opera ballet 'Zelindor' is a delightful rococo pastorale which found favour with Louis XV's mistress, Madame de Pompadour, no doubt because its story about a king who loves a commoner reflected her own situation. Opera Lafayette's 2007 revival was hailed as "brilliant" by 'The Washington Post', which praised the soloists, headed by Jean-Paul Fouchecourt, and chamber chorus who "sang with a gusto matched by the orchestra's rhythmic pungency". This is the work's world premiere recording with full orchestra and chorus.

pleasant and aurally attractive... Tenor Jean-Paul FouchTcourt is particularly good in both the works, singing parts written for very high tenor - and without use of falsetto - with clarity and considerable style.



Reviews

Versaille is just a sigh
Those who only think of opera as "grand" will probably not find this disc to their taste. Other folks, whose feet tap at the elegant dances of the royal court, will certainly enjoy it. The effect is made here not by the huge crescendo and the high C, but by elegant phrasing, ornaments, and instrumental effects. There's not much plot to "Zélindor" (given complete)--god loves mortal, who loves him anyway--and it's just an excuse for the dances. Jean-Paul Fouchécourt is the ultimate "tenore di grazia," his every phrase stylish and easy. Though she sings well enough, Heidi Grant Murphy seems almost earth-bound by comparison. "Le Trophée" is reduced to a suite of dance selections, with only two arias. Very nice work from the period instruments, guided by Ryan Brown; texts and translations. Do indulge.
