Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2015
Currentzis describes the act of listening to Rameau as a conversation in which 'you are naked and it is painful'. In the dewy pathos of 'Tristes apprets'..., as the string fade into a pale halo around Nadine Koutcher's fragile voice and the pulse slows to nothingness, you can almost see what he means.

The Observer, 16th November 2014
Sometimes it is just too extreme...Yet there is highly original thinking here, and you cannot argue with the sophistication of the playing by the orchestra MusicAeterna.

In celebration of the 250th anniversary year of master composer Jean-Philippe Rameau, Rameau: The Sound of Light is a uniquely beautiful anthology of arias and orchestral works chosen by Currentzis from his favorite works by Rameau.
