"N'espérez plus, mes yeux", Airs sérieux et à boire vol.3
Les Arts Florissants
With this third volume of Airs sérieux et à boire, the ensemble Les Arts Florissants return to this genre whose refinement had marked the French musical landscape for over a hundred years. By turns gallant, earthy, or spiritual, these vocal miniatures, prized at the French court, ushered in a ground-breaking style which opened the door to an endless variety of interpretations.
‘One can hardly find enough praise for the individuality of these inspired performers, for their skill to make the music animate the words ( . . . ) as they display a joyful unity of purpose. A unique event!’ (Opéra Magazine)
