Le Concert des Nations
Jordi Savall - conductor

 

Purcell's Fairy Queen and Dioclesian (called "The Prophetess" here) were two examples of semi-opera, a genre that flourished in England in the late 17th and early 18th centuries before Handel blew up the spot with Italian opera. As opposed to conventional opera, the semi-opera variety wasn't through composed, with arias, recitatives, etc, but rather had instrumental music throughout to accompany action onstage such as dances, and to provide segues between acts and scenes. (The characters generally spoke their parts, with an occasional air or song.)

In this recording, Jordi Savall gives these unique, at times Lully-esque scores his customary imaginative and colorful treatment with his orchestra le Concert des Nations. The performance standard here is very high, highlighted by rich, dark bass lines, a stellar violin section, and impeccable intonation in the winds and brass. This group's comparatively well known reading of the Handel Water Music is in a similar vein stylistically, so if you're familiar with that and like it, this would be a good choice. Also note that the same recording is now available on Savall's Alia Vox label-- considering that the Astree release is out of print, seekers may want to try this first. ---Andrew G. Waid, amazon.com
