Elin Manahan Thomas introduces highlights from a concert recorded in the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg last year, given by Les Talens Lyriques directed by Christophe Rousset, featuring music by Telemann and Rameau.

The instrumental and vocal ensemble Les Talens Lyriques was founded twenty-five years ago by the harpsichordist and conductor Christophe Rousset. It owes its name to an opera by Rameau, and it's the music of Rameau which features in this performance, along with two colourful overtures by Telemann.

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) - Overture in G, TWV 55:G1 ('La musette')
Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) - Le berger fidèle, cantata
Georg Philipp Telemann - Overture in B flat, TWV 55:B5 ('Les Nations')
