Dalliance, deceit and dastardly blackmail are all in the air at the rococo palace of Versailles, where the Danish composer Poul Schierbeck’s only opera Fête Galante unfolds its colourful plot.

Schierbeck’s opera maintains an exquisite musical balance between the lyrical and the comic, and this recording brings new life to Schierbeck’s tuneful music with a strong cast of Nordic singers, accompanied by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and Michael Schønwandt.

Gramophone Magazine

Ocotber 2013

“Inventive energy abounds, along with a smiling lyricism that shows more than skin-deep affinity with Nielsen. Reminders of Puccini and Strauss occasionally surface, but not so strongly as to provoke accusations of epigonism...Above all, the orchestration is a constant delight...Dacapo's cast is without conspicuous weakness”
