Album Summary

>Boismortier, Joseph Bodin : Don Quichotte (Chez la Duchesse), opera-ballet
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Boismortier, mirroring the simpler rococo taste of the time, provided charming airs, supple choruses and many invigorating dances. What more enticement is needed? The cast is stylish and conveys the spirit of Cervantes and Favart with evident relish. The score is a delight from start to finish and makes me long to hear the composer's pastorale, Daphnis et Chloe...Go and buy it without delay!" -NA, Gramophone
