Notes & Reviews:
Hippolyte et Aricie was Rameu's earliest surviving opera, a tale of Phaedra's incestuous love for her stepson, Hippolyte. Marc Minkowski's recording is well cast, with Bernarda Fink an "outstandingly impressive Phaedra" Gramophone. Full track lists and synopses n English, German and French
"Excellent cast...crisp, alert performances"-The Penguin Guide
BBC Music Magazine
Phèdre was a breakthrough role for Bernarda Fink, who sings here with grave sensuality, supported by a characterful and largely Francophone cast.
Recording information: Opéra Royal, Versailles (06/1994).
