New harmonia mundi CD release: an irresistible Platée!

October 29 2021

Many of you have been waiting for it: the CD of the opera Platée is finally out!

A marsh nymph, poorly helped by nature, believes she is irresistible enough to be loved by Jupiter... From this incredible story, Rameau creates a "ballet bouffon" that has everything to seduce: a brilliant orchestra, incredibly modern harmonies, flamboyant characters - and above all, humor!

The latest addition to harmonia mundi's "Les Arts Florissants" collection, this CD, recorded at the Theater an der Wien in 2020, brings together the finest performers of the French repertoire around William Christie and high-tenor Marcel Beekman.
