Description: Only the second recording of Rameau’s late (1763) masterpiece which was never performed until 1964. The writing for orchestra and choir is wildly virtuosic, the melodic invention is exceptional, the drama is powerful: it is a veritable musical testament, a succession of violent elements, passionate duets and heartrending lamentations. 3 CDs.
