Notes & Reviews:

Paris's Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Le Concert d' Astree, under its founder and conductor Emmanuelle Haim gave a concert entitled Fetes Baroques to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Joining Haim and the orchestra were no less than 24 of the world's most distinguished singer of repertoire. Performing music by various artists. The recording of this spectacular concert joins the more than 15 discs that Haim and Le Concert d' Astree already have in the Virgin Classics catalog.

The Observer
Galas are usually more fun to attend than to listen to after the event, but this celebration of the 10th anniversary of Emmanuelle Haïm's lively French ensemble is a baroque blast...all very stylish fun.

International Record Review
All through the concert, the orchestra has produced good work and some plangent or jubilant sounds as the music requires...Commendations too for the conductor Emmanuelle Haim, who brings much to the pleasure of listening. The planning has resulted in a programme of diversity, of several moods and tempos.

Classical Music
While some will struggle to swallow some of Emmanuel Haïm's more extravagant mannerisms...it's hard not to be swept along by the sheer élan of this live recording...The most interesting singing, for my money, comes from the lively lyric soprano Jaël Azzaretti and Patricia Petibon in La Folie's boisterous aria from Platée. Above all, Haïm and her feisty team summon up the spirit of baroque spectacle for thier celebratory feast.

Gramophone Magazine
The music is well chosen, all of the highest quality appeal, and splendidly sung by these charismatic artists.
