Notes & Reviews:
Jean de La Fontaine's Fables return to vivid life with La cigale et les violins, thanks to Catherine Perrin's narration and a musical setting that combines the worlds of Canadian composer Denis Gougeon and of 18th-century French composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. The 11 fables chosen for this disc are presented in words and in music by Catherine Perrin. She serves both as narrator - and playing solo or accompanied by Les Violons du Roy directed by Mathieu Lussier - as harpsichordist.
