Album Summary

>Marais, Marin [Composer] : Semele, opera
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The results sparkle: careful attention has been paid to articulation and the set-up of the recording enables us to hear this music more as chamber music than incidental music to a drama.Although the tremblement de terre that ends the opera was intended as the crowd-pleaser, the music of Acts 2 and 4 offers true delights. The descent of Jupiter (tr 14), the hints at dissonance that evoke the fête galante, the entertaining chaconne that follows in track 16, the obligatory visit to the Netherworld in Act 3, and the imaginative use of the hurdy-gurdy and drones in tracks 21_25 illustrate Marais's masterful command of tragedie lyrique." -Gramophone
