Quote from: val on October 13, 2007, 12:14:15 AMLULLY: Atys, opera / Les Arts Florissants, Christie (Harmonia Mundi)This is perhaps Lully's best opera. The Prologue is splendid with the colors of the instruments, the rhythm. The first two acts, however, are heavy with the kind of rhetoric declamation that Lully introduced in French vocal music.But the opera has extraordinary moments: the scene of the Sleep, in the 3rd act, is a model followed by many composers (Rameau, Purcell), and the great tragedy of the 5th act, with Atys murdering Sangaride and then killing himself. In this scenes Lully is at the level of Monteverdi.The interpreters are just acceptable, except the very touching Agnes Mellon in Sangaride and Bernard Deletré, irresistible comedian in the role of the God of the River.

Quote from: erato on January 19, 2008, 06:12:08 AMI hope it will be recorded or filmed!
Quote from: traverso on May 16, 2008, 12:51:50 AMMaybe you can try the instrumental pieces or arrangements from this repertory instead first. "Concert suites" from Lully, Rameau, Marais etc. sound good. Or if you insist on vocal recordings, I can think at least one now that would suit your need. Veronique Gens has a voice that would please most listeners, and the accompaniment from Rousset can't be beat.

Quote from: Elgarian on April 15, 2009, 01:20:52 PMGosh, this is a long thread, and this is my first post in it - I thought I should attempt to see all of it before I spoke, but life is short and art is long, and I had to do a bit of skipping... but as far as I can see (forgive me if I missed it), no one has yet talked about this DVD (though there has been mention made of the live performances):Right. Now, trust me. Stop whatever you're doing now, and order one.
