Notes & Reviews:

Rameau revised his 1737 opera 'Castor et Pollux' in 1754, at the height of the raging debate, the so-called Querelle des Bouffons, over the relative merits of French and Italian opera. Long regarded as Rameau's crowning achievement, it won immediate popular success, not only striking a significant blow for French music over Italian music but for the supporters of Rameau who looked to him to take over Lully's mantle as composer of the French national style.
