Album Summary

>Rameau, Jean-Philippe : Dardanus, tragédie en musique
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Marc Minkowski made his debut on Archiv with his much-praised recording of Rameau's "Hippolyte et Aricie." Now he turns his attention to "Dardanus", widely regarded as Rameau's finest opera, although it is almost unknown as the staging has always proven difficult. This album marks the first recording of the opera on authentic instruments, and features a wonderful cast of youthful singers. This is self recommending.
