Le Concert Spirituel
Hervé Niquet – conductor

 

The contents of both these discs were recorded in 1992 and issued separately towards the end of the decade in the U.S. at full price. This is their first reissue, as far as I can tell, and one hopes this release will draw attention once more to some truly impressive performances.

Any performance of Pigmalion rises and falls by the talent of its eponymous hero, for its three female roles are minor. Fortunately, Jean-Paul Fouchécourt was engaged for the part. He has sometimes been described as an haute-contre, though the meaning of the term has been hotly debated of late. Suffice to say that if it refers to a high tenor voice employing no falsetto, and used to convey an emotional range from sweetly lyrical to brightly heroic in French music, then Fouchécourt fits the bill. He excels equally in the expansive vigor of “L’Amour triomphe,” as well as the delicate but elaborate coloratura of “Règne, Amour.” Niquet cuts him no slack, setting a daunting pace for the latter, but Fouchécourt easily triumphs.

He can also be heard in the opening movement from In convertendo, Dominus, on the second album. Niquet casts the three surviving grands motets (a fourth survives only as a fragment, and is not included) from strength, with the likes of Stephan Imbodem and Véronique Gens among his other soloists. His conducting is alert, rhythmically buoyant, and attentive to both musical and word values, as the multi-tempo hurdles of “Converte, Domine” show. Details are never lost, but neither is momentum. The choral and orchestral work of Le Concert Spirituel is first-rate, with a precision that doesn’t rule out a refined color palette.

A relatively short but informative essay is included, but don’t expect a libretto and translation here. Virgin only includes the title of each cut, in the requisite French or Latin. The sound quality is excellent, however, spacious yet close enough to really catch the voices and instrumentals well. --- Barry Brenesal, arkivmusic.com
