Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Gossec made an important contribution to the development of French symphonic music and played a central role in Parisian musical life for almost three-quarters of a century. The opera Le Triomphe de la Republique was composed in 1793 following the French Revolution and wonderfully demonstrates the musical movement that France experienced following the change in political climate. 'I Barocchisti' have a worldwide reputation for reviving vocal and instrumental works of the Baroque period and have earned worldwide success with live performances and recordings. This is the only available recording of 'Le Triomphe de la Republique.' "Diego Fasolis and his performers deliver this extraordinary score with no hint of embarrassment at its pervasive simplicity in a brightly-hued recording. Choral vocal lines are mostly firm, Gossec's richly upholstered orchestral lines are handsomely shaped and the soloists sing with bright-eyed conviction. Very much a period piece, but one worth dipping into." - BBC Music Magazine
