Rebel & Rameau - Suites


Suite from Castor & Pollux

Rebel, J-F:

Les Élémens

Jean-Féry Rebel’s dance symphony Les élémens from 1737/38 describes the state of nature before man’s arrival as seen very much through the eyes of the French late Baroque. Using innovative instrumental representation, Chaos and all the elements are accurately portrayed through the musical medium.

L’Orfeo Barockorchester, Michi Gaigg

This new SACD is devoted to eighteenth-century French music. The recording of the overture, including the dance interlude from Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Castor et Pollux, first performed at the Académie Royale de Musique in 1737, captures the essence of the most performed opera of the eighteenth century.

Classics Today

“[L’Orfeo Barockorchester], led by violinist Michi Gaigg, is a delight to hear, a finely tuned and ideally balanced ensemble whose playing gives real drive and support to the singers”

Gramophone Magazine

February 2009

“The Orfeo Baroque Orchestra give a vibrant performance of the Rameau. Gaigg is a decisive leader who encourages her colleagues to brandish their bows and clip the dotted notes with breathtaking panache… percussionist Rogerio Gonçalves provides wonderful rhythmic counterpoint. ...strikingly idiosyncratic performances.”
