»The Sound of Light«
Works by Jean-Philippe Rameau
Sara Blanch, soprano
Conducted by Teodor Currentzis
Jean-Philippe Rameau was without doubt one of the most revolutionary composers of the Baroque period: Like no other, he broke the long-established musical laws of his time and developed his own virtuoso tonal language. His unconventional approach and experimentation with and within music, which were considered his greatest strengths, were also his springboard for developing his modern, dramatic style. Equally bold and unconventional is conductor Teodor Currentzis’s approach.
»A magical, warm glow unfolds with unfathomable intensity« (Concerti)
A few years ago, the Greek-born conductor set out to make Rameau’s music resound in tune with the times, choosing his electrifying musicAeterna ensemble to do so. Under the title »The Sound of Light«, Sony Classical released a stirring album of Currentzis’ favourite pieces from the French composer’s operas and opera ballets. With dynamicism and precision, musical, percussive and passionate, the sound magician showcases the idiosyncrasies of Rameau’s instrumental and vocal music.
