Notes & Reviews:
Rameau’s Les Paladins (1760), while subtitled “Comédie lyrique in three acts,” is actually a virtuosic mixture of serious and comic operatic traditions (comédie lyrique, tragédie lyrique, opera buffa, pastorale, morality tale, farcical parody) which, when combined with its much misunderstood ironic allusions, irritated the public at the time of its first performance. Perhaps this complexity is what makes this work especially fascinating today, and available now for the first time on CD, with Konrad Junghänel leading a superb cast of performers.Notes & Reviews:
