8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 27, 2006
Jean Phillippe Rameau (1685 -- 1764) began to compose opera only when he reached the age of fifty. He wrote over thirty operas which both popular and controversial in his lifetime. Alas, they soon faded from active performance. Rameau's operas contain much inspiring music, for both orchestra and singers.

A major difficulty with performing Rameau's operas in full lies in the conventions of French music of his day in which musical sections, called divertissements, were separated from the dramatic sections in which the plot was developed. Thus, Rameau's music can usefully be approached by selections from the operas in which the musical interludes are gathered together.

In this CD performed by the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century under the Direction of Frans Bruggen, orchestral selections from two Rameau operas, "Nais" and "Zoroastre" have been compiled to form two orchestral suites. Frans Bruggen, who had been a virtuoso performer on the recorder, formed the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century in 1981, and it has gathered an enviable and well-deserved reputation for its performance of early music on period instruments. In 1997, Bruggen and the Orchestra formed their own label, "The Grand Tour," for their CD releases, and this CD is part of that series.

Virtually all early French music, including the orchestral music from the operas presented here is based upon dance. Thus, both the orchestral suites derived from "Nais" and "Zoroastre" are full of French dance forms, including gavottes, musettes, rigaudons, sarabandes, passepieds, minuets, and more. The selections also include overtures, which in Rameau set the stage for the drama,, airs, and short pieces descriptive of the dramatic action.

Rameau - Orchestral Suites ~ Naïs · Zoroastre / Orchestra of the 18th Century · Brüggen is a recording under the direction of Frans Bruggen who leads the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century on this Glossa relase from 2001. The booklet contains 34 pages. It contains a list of whom plays what. We also get a well-written synopsis on the two operas by Karen Sutherland. I love Baroque music and Rameau exemplies some of the best from that time period. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.
