Synopsis

Product Description
Alcione's first performance took place at the Theatre du Palais Royal in Paris on February 18, 1706. Alongside Semele, it is the only opera composed by Marin Marais. Shortly after the premiere, Marais gathered together the most beautiful tunes, including the famous Tempest, and composed four instrumental suites. Le Concert des Nations and Jordi Savall revel in the rich colors of these vivid scores. Originally released on the Astree label, Alia Vox has reissued this superb recording as part of its Heritage series. In addition to deluxe packaging and a richly documented booklet, the release has been remastered and now features state-of-the-art multichannel audio.
