Che Puro Ciel (Mehta, Akademie für Alto Musik Berlin/Jacobs)

Mehta and Jacobs prove that it's not just all about Gluck

Gluck · Haydn · Mozart Arias: Marie-Nicole Lemieux

Lemieux shines her light on the musical Enlightenment.

Tragediennes 3: Various arias (soprano: Veronique Gens; Les Talens Lyriques/Rousset)

Gens scores a hat trick with heroines familiar and forgotten.

GLUCK Orphée et Eurydice (singers: Flórez, Garmendia, Marianelli; Coro y Orquesta del Teatro Real Madrid/López-Cobos)

Recorded in concert two years ago at the Teatro Real Madrid, this new release of Orphée et Eurydice is both a vehicle and a byway for its star, Juan Diego Flórez.

Tragediennes 2: Various arias (soprano: Veronique Gens; Les Talens Lyriques/Rousset)

This is the second of two CDs by Veronique Gens devoted to tragediennes in early French opera (I have not heard the first).
