Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
It includes a beautiful passage where Anacreon falls asleep to a descending chromatic bass below flute and violin, followed by four pizzicato bars representing raindrops... the instrumental writing that provides the most enchanting moments. L'enlevement d'Adonis boasts a splendid hunting chorus oboes and horns to the fore.

International Record Review, December 2013
The 13-voice choir is spirited and alert... polished in texture... d'Herin directs all with energy and understandable enthusiasm for some rarely heard music.

The Guardian, 9th January 2014
A performance of great polish and refinement. D'HTrin is scrupulously alert to Rameau's subtle gradations of sensuousness. The playing is adroit, the choral singing dexterous, though the choir itself occasionally sounds too small...Pride of place goes to Karine Deshayes.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Our second set brings us a premiere. Produced in 1758, Les Surprises de l'Amour (Cupid's Surprises), was one of the dogged Rameau's late works. Les Surprises is labelled an "operaballet", making quite clear the importance of the dance element. Each entrTe has its distinct cast, and there is here a pool of nine singers for assignments in various roles. Once again, we are dealing with a young vibrant group of singers who are fully steeped in French language and musical style. It is most engaging and enjoyable, and this premiere recording is a most welcome addition.
