Product Description

On December 19, 2011 Paris's Theatre des Champs-Elysees Le concert d' Astree, under founder and conductor Emmanuelle Haim gave a concert entitled 'Fetes Baroques' to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Joining Haim and the orchestra were no less than 24 of the world's most distinguished singers of baroque repertoire.

About the Artist

Emmanuelle Haïm began her career by studying piano with Yvonne Lefébure and then organ with André Isoir. She came to focus on the harpsichord, which she studied with Kenneth Gilbert and Christophe Rousset, and was awarded five first prizes at the Paris Conservatoire.

Specialising in vocal coaching, she was initially active at the Baroque music centre of the Studio Versailles-Opera and then at the CNSM in Paris. Since then, she has accompanied many leading singers in recital, among them Cecilia Bartoli, Natalie Dessay, Patricia Petibon and Sandrine Piau. As a continuo-player and musical assistant she spent time at a number of opera houses, acquiring an exceptional knowledge of the Baroque and Classical repertoire through her work with, among others William Christie, Sir Simon Rattle and Daniel Harding.

In 2000 she gathered together a group of singers and instrumentalists to form Le Concert d'Astrée, an ensemble specialising in the Baroque repertoire and taking a natural and expressive approach to performance. The group now appears regularly at musical centres such as the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the Barbican Centre in London, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and at numerous festivals around the world. Soloists who have appeared with Le Concert d'Astrée include Natalie Dessay, Ian Bostridge, Patrizia Ciofi, Susan Graham, Véronique Gens, Sara Mingardo and Laurent Naouri. In 2003 Le Concert d'Astrée was named Best Ensemble of the Year at the Victoires de la Musique, France's leading musical awards ceremony.

In 2001 Le Concert d'Astrée and Emmanuelle Haïm were granted sponsorship by Fondation France Telecom and signed an exclusive recording contract with Virgin Classics. Their first CD, of Handel duets, was released in November 2002. It was followed by more Handel - Aci, Galatea e Polifemo (a Gramophone Award winner) - and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with Susan Graham and Ian Bostridge (named `Choc de l'année' by Le Monde de la Musique). Monteverdi's Orfeo was named among the Best of 2004 by the New York Times and nominated for a Grammy Award, while Delirio, a programme of Handel's Italian cantatas with Natalie Dessay, was awarded a Diapason d'Or by the leading French music magazine. This was followed by Monteverdi's Combattimento, starring Rolando Villazon, Handel's Trionfo del tempo e del disinganno, again with Natalie Dessay, and, for release in Autumn 2007, a recital of arias with countertenor Philippe Jaroussky. Also released in late 2007 is a programme of Handel's Dixit Dominus and Bach's Magnificat on which Dessay and Jaroussky are joined by Karine Deshayes and Laurent Naouri.

Emmanuelle Haïm also makes a career as a guest conductor, appearing with, among others, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, while her success at Glyndebourne Festival Opera with Handel's Rodelinda resulted in invitations to conduct the same composer's Theodora and Giulio Cesare at the house.

This really is a great disk especially to a Baroque opera nut as I am. The playing and singing are right up there. It is a mix of serious and comic with a dash of grand choral music and gracious orchestral pieces. I have gone over it several times to find the nuances of the vocal and orchestral material and am happily satisfied with both aspects. The composers included are the greats of the era; Lully, Rameau, Purcell and the whole second disk devoted to Handel. Some 24 solo artists are listed for a concert billed as "Le Concert d' Astree" (Zeus' daughter who became the constellation Virgo). The orchestra was conducted by Emmanuelle Haim. It was the tenth such concert in a benefit for Cancer Research. The concert was given on December 19, 2011 at the Theatre des Champs Elysees , Paris. A grand time was had by all. In general the singers were very good and with a few exceptions, right on top form. The opening number was from Rameau' "Les Indes Galantes" with the wonderful Natalie Dessay as Zima and Stephane Degout as Adrio. It is highly rhythmic and a crowd pleaser. The second number also by Rameau was from his greatest work in my estimation "Hippolite et Aricie". Anne Sophie von Otter, a wonderful Mezzo sang Phedre's lament "Quelle plainte en ces lieux m'appelle?" It was heartrendingly superb. This is followed by the "nightingale's lament" beautifully done by Jael Azzaretti and two flutes. Among other good numbers were Patricia Petibon's comedic interpretation of Folie in Rameau's "Platee". There was another aria from "Les Indes" sung screechily by Sonya Yoncheva as Zima. Not nice. Lully was represented by an exceptionally well done Marche and quartet from act five of Thesee "Vivez contents dans ces aimables lieux" with Jael Azzaretti, Francoise Masset, Topi Lehtipuu & Stephane Degout.Read more ›

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jacques COULARDEAU on August 15, 2012
Format: Audio CD
A couple of CDs that are only there for the pleasure of your soul and it starts as intense as possible with Jean-Philippe Rameau. The first track from Les Indes Galantes takes us to the wildest country we can imagine though it's only a mental trip. Repetitive music that has the force of some musical mantra amplified by the very systematic dressing, undressing and redressing of this fundamental and short musical sentence - or is it a magical formula, a curse from the savages it introduces - now with percussions, now with the two voices, male and female, now with some more strings, without ever ending. And we are in it for two hours.

Hippolyte et Aricie is what the French love over all a tenebrae, a dirge, a funeral rite, a long lamentation on love lost, re-found and lost again. And Phèdre of the legend if not mythology, the daughter of Minos and Pasiphaé so much liked under Louis XIV in France, turns now and then jealous and murderous. She finds the violence of an intended vengeance and crime. Racine is just behind and the allusion is direct and cultured in that century and time when the court people wanted to shine by their knowledge of their heritage, even when they had little inheritance.

Then Dardanus brings Venus down onto the stage, another beloved scene and event the French could die for, die of some heart attack, I mean intense love excitation at the vision of this feminine body that has no flaw but has all the attractive shapes and adornments that make that vision delightful. So then the senses can find some peace in the enjoyment of that beauty. But the heart will take over and some drums will pound in your chest and your ears to lead you to conquer without stopping but by leaping up and pouncing down onto the prey.
