PCM 03 - Les Talens Lyriques

Les Talens Lyriques and director Christophe Rousset are joined by soprano Eugénie Warnier for a programme of French Baroque music by Couperin, Lully, Rameau and Montéclair.

BBC Proms Chamber Music 2011

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

Christophe Rousset and his ensemble Les Talens Lyriques explore French Baroque music with an Italian flavour, taking the Italian-born naturalised Frenchman Lully as their inspiration. Couperin and Rameau blend the best of both countries in their vivacious and delicately poised instrumental works and Montéclair retells the classical story of the death of Lucretia in music of drama and passion.

Lully: Armida's monologue : "Ah, Rinaldo, e dove sei?" (from the ballet Les amours déguisés)
Rameau: Pièces de clavecin en concerts - Premier concert
Montéclair: Cantata "Morte di Lucrezia"
