Rameau: Dardanus, Le Temple de la Gloire (Orchestral Suites)

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
If French Baroque operas were as much an opportunity for dancing and spectacular scenic effects as they were for singing and acting, then the biggest byproduct was the extensive supply of orchestral music required to accompany all those gavottes, menuets, and gigues, in addition to the symphonies, préludes, and ouvertures. No composer took that more to heart than Jean-Philippe Rameau, who very nearly made the orchestra the equal of the singers in his operas, writing copious amounts of lively, colorfully scored instrumental music.

If French Baroque operas were as much an opportunity for dancing and spectacular scenic effects as they were for singing and acting, then the biggest byproduct was the extensive supply of orchestral music required to accompany all those gavottes, menuets, and gigues, in addition to the symphonies, préludes, and ouvertures. No composer took that more to heart than Jean-Philippe Rameau, who very nearly made the orchestra the equal of the singers in his operas, writing copious amounts of lively, colorfully scored instrumental music. On this delightful recording, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, the Canadian original-instrument ensemble led by Jeanne Lamon, offer two extensive suites drawn from Rameau's 1739 opera Dardanus and his 1745 opéra-ballet -- a peculiarly French hybrid genre -- Le Temple de la gloire. Gentle airs, rustic scenes, sparkling dances, graceful overtures, and more inspire the group to spirited, technically assured playing that will make Baroque buffs say, "Magnifique!"
All Music Guide - Allen Schrott
No opera composer of the Baroque era invested his stage works with more imaginative orchestral music than Jean-Philippe Rameau. The adventurous wind orchestration, rhythmic drive and variety, and complex interplay of voices found in his interludes, dances, and preludes are immediately striking to modern ears in a way that only the dedicated orchestral works of other Baroque masters can match think Handel's "Royal Fireworks Music," for example. As a result, this program of orchestral excerpts from "Dardanus" and "Le Temple de la Gloire" re-creates the stir of excitement that those operas caused in their day without having to include a single bar of singing. It is a welcome and beautifully realized program that should appeal to anyone with a taste for eighteenth century orchestral music. Tafelmusik's strings are crisp, energetic, and light, striking a compelling balance between cleanliness and warmth. The winds, and the horn players in particular, handle Rameau's wicked turns of phrase and demanding tessituras with graceful precision. The counterpoint between winds and strings, and often between different wind groups at the same time, is one of the most entertaining aspects of this music, and never easier to appreciate than it is here. For her part, conductor Jeanne Lamon emphasizes elegance, rhythmic precision, and a careful layering of dynamics above all else, resulting in a sound that is less brash and driven than some readings of Rameau listen to Marc Minkowski's complete recording of "Dardanus" for comparison. But the result makes for a compelling program, and a convincing treatment of these short excerpts, which could sound disjointed and haphazard in the wrong hands; as it is, they jell nicely and reward both attentive and casual listening in equal measure.
