Notes & Reviews:
Inaugurated in 1958, Das Alte Werk quickly gained a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. As the field of early music spread wider and wider and new paths were constantly broken, the imprint rapidly became the touchstone by which other labels were judged, not least for its epoch-making complete recording of Bach's sacred cantatas. Originally released in 1972, this 3CD set of Jean-Philippe Rameau's Castor et Pollux features Nicolas Harnoncourt, his Concentus musicus Wein, and a singing cast that includes Zeger Vandersteene and Gérard Souzay in the title roles.Notes & Reviews:
