Notes & Reviews:

Following the success of the albums L'orchestre de Louis XIII (Philidor) and L'orchestre du Roi Soleil (Lully), Jordi Savall explores another dynastic opus, this time focusing on music by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Once again, Le Concert des Nations sparkles in these four orchestral suites, which exemplify the genius of the great French composer. With glistening orchestral colors and breathtaking virtuosity, Savall and his group demonstrate their special affinity with the repertoire of the XVIIIth century. Offered at a special price, this high-resolution recording is a must-have for anyone interested in this repertoire.

"The exhilarating effect of this joyous music could scarcely be better conveyed. Savall has chosen his "suites" to reflect the astonishing variety of Rameau's instrumentation and inventiveness as a composer of ballet music...The wonderfully windy music for Les Boréades (sons of Boréas, the north wind) culminates in a sizzling contredanse très vive - guaranteed to set the toes tapping." -The Sunday Time

"This is dance music of dizzying variety and instrumental colour...There's lively, rumbustious playing from Le Concert des Nations...The angular contredanses with their quirky intervals, and the magnificent chaconnes, are splendid - the one for Naïs (1748), involving dancing athletes, boxers, runners and wrestlers, is made for the Olympics opening." -The Observer

"Jordi Savall and his ebullient Baroque orchestra, Le Concert des Nations, have released recordings of the music Philidor wrote for Louis XIII, and Lully for Louis XIV. All is eclipsed by the double-CD of Rameau's fabulously spirited rococo pieces for Louis XV's orchestra...these suites have a tunefulness, an instrumental diversity and a quirky joyousness that even the most curmudgeonly Anglo-Saxon soul will find hard to resist." -The Sunday Times

BBC Music Magazine, October 2011
With a large and varied orchestra and (optional) surround sound, Jordi Savall revels in the unmatched opulence, extravagance and scale of mid-18th century France...The music is divorced from its dramatic context and the visual accompaniment of costume, dancing and scenery, but is speaks splendidly for itself, displaying Rameau's kaleidoscopic orchestration and arresting devices...A magnificent production - the high Baroque doesn't get higher than this.

Classic FM Magazine, September 2011
The Chaconne ending Les Indes Galantes shows Savall's breadth, roving with equal conviction from pastoral sensuality to blazing, robust militarism. The whiplash strings of the Nais Overture free an infectious rhythm and the off-beat timpani create thrilling thunder in a voluminous acoustic.
