Abstract:

This program features a discussion of 18th-century French Baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau's Les boréades, interspersed with performances of excerpts from the opera. Christie provides historical background, explaining that Les boréades was Rameau's last opera, written in the 1750s and rehearsed at the court of Versailles, but never performed until it was rediscoverd in the late 19th century. Director Robert Carsen recounts the story of the opera, which is set in ancient Bactria, and Christie discusses the French Baroque musical idiom, which is heavily reliant on recitative and requires a precise declamatory style from singers. He also discusses the music's rhythmic alterations, which are not written down but must be supplied by the orchestra and singers, and makes an argument for Rameau as a visionary, avant-garde composer. Each of Christie's points in demonstrated by the performance of a relevant passage from the opera.
