CPO: 777876-2

In cooperation with the Boston Early Music Festival, CPO is releasing two baroque operas by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, works proving to be both complex and highly entertaining. Charpentier wrote an impressive number of sacred works; the number of secular works is considerably smaller, but similarly varied. These two works are genuine standouts. The BEMF once again presents a marvelous cast of young soloists for the interpretation of these two vibrant operas.

These song cycles explore the theme of longing for freedom, drawing on a broad and eclectic variety of poetic sources. Vocally lovely and supremely sensitive performances are given by tenor Paul Appleby, soprano Susanna Phillips and baritone Brett Polegato and supported to perfection by pianist Brian Zeger.
