Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In Grétry’s L’Amant Jaloux, the aesthetic of France in the Age of Enlightenment is revived in a libretto full of wit and subtlety and a remarkably melodic score whose dramatic movement recalls Mozart, who was staying in Paris at the time. Grétry, the Queen’s music director, penned a masterpiece of the genre — a model of demicaractère that balances the registers of comedy and sentiment. The work was included in the repertoire of many European theaters and confi rmed Grétry as the greatest French composer of his time. At the end of his life, le chevalier de Saint George conducted an orchestra named Le Cercle de l’Harmonie. As its director in the former Palais Bourbons- Orléans, today Palais Royal, he performed major works of his time. Reviving this name in 2005 during the Deauville festival, Jérémie Rhorer, conductor and composer, decided to gather their ideal group of players to perform symphonic and lyrical repertoire from the end of the 18th century. Their identity is strongly linked to masterpieces by Mozart’s and Haydn, but they are also captivated by the French repertoire from the end of Ancien Régime (18th century) to 1830.
