“The Amadeus is distinguished by fine playing […] The Amadeus’ accounts of the C minor (K.406) and C major (K.515) works are particularly searching and spontaneous, and obviously much thought and skill have gone into the matter of internal balance as well as the interpretations. Their account of the G minor (K.516) with its Elysian slow movement has also been admired, and there is no question about the refinement and polish of the playing, both here and in the D major (K. 593).” Penguin Guide, 1992

Les Nouveaux Caractères, Sébastien d'Hérin

With 'The Fairy Queen', Sébastien d’Hérin and Les Nouveaux Caractères set down on record their musical vision of one of Henry Purcell’s most compelling dramatic works. The 1692/1693 work dates from around half a century before two other Baroque scores which Les Nouveaux Caractères has tackled recently and received significant critical approval: Leclair’s 'Scylla et Glaucus' and Rameau’s 'Les Surprises de l’Amour' (the latter, like 'The Fairy Queen', appearing on Glossa).

Being a semi-opera, the music of 'The Fairy Queen' doesn’t need to follow a narrative methodically from start to finish and, indeed, what we get is essentially a series of self-contained masques. Purcell channels the spirit of William Shakespeare’s' A Midsummer Night’s Dream' rather than using the text of that comedy; many characters appear across the work but yet Purcell’s music is of great coherence. Not unlike Purcell himself, Sébastien d’Hérin has opted not to use a formal chorus but to have a long-established team of musical partners singing the choral parts as well as the solo roles. Among the modern-day singers are Anders Dahlin, Samuel Boden, Caitlin Hulcup (who sings “An Epithalamium”), Virginie Pochon, Guillaume Andrieux, Hjördis Thébault and Caroline Mutel (to whom is entrusted “The Plaint”). Alongside the typical instruments of the string, wind and continuo departments of d’Hérin’s orchestra are to be found a serpent, a cornett and a regal.

In the booklet essay, the conductor himself explains how this new production of 'The Fairy Queen' has taken shape over a period of ten years.
