By Steven Guy on February 1, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Castor et Pollux may not be Jean-Philippe Rameau's greatest operas, although it is a very fine opera, but it is certainly Rameau's most beautiful. The orchestral music is rich and full of life and colour, as always. The tunes are very good - we have the usual range of music here, from toe-tappers to sublimely beautiful arias.

The aria "Tristes apprêts, pâles flambeaux?", sung by Télaïre (Agnés Mellon), Acte I, Scène III, is one of the most beautiful and, indeed, sublime Baroque opera arias I've ever heard. Here this and you'll want to buy this opera.

The cast is strong - Howard Crook, Agnés Mellon, Véronique Gens, Sandrine Piau, Mark Padmore, Claire Brua and Sophie Daneman (before the wobbly vibrato heard in later recordings set in) - and Les Arts Florissants directed by William Christie are in top form.

A must for lovers of Rameau and those curious about Baroque opera.

Hopefully, William Christie and Les Arts Florissants will revisit this work on DVD soon.

Rameau - Castor & Pollux is a recording under the direction of William Christie who leads the Les Arts Florissants on this harmonia mundi France recording from 1993. The booklet is over 100 pages. Sylvie Bouissou has written the well-written and informative music notes. These have been translated into English by Derek Yeld. One also gets a short and concise synopsis. The lyrics are available in French, English and German. The sound quality is astounding. Highly recommended. 5/5.
