"Ms. Lamon and Tafelmusik have earned high marks … the music's greatness might not be so obvious but for Tafelmusik's fine period style… It will have listeners wondering why this music is not as well known as works by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi." - The New York Times

This re-release of orchestral suites from two stage works by Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) marks the first occasion on which JEANNE LAMON, and the TAFELMUSIK ORCHESTRA, Toronto’s award-winning period instrument orchestra, recorded music of the French baroque.  The two suites featured on this CD are drawn from Rameau’s epic five-act “tragédie en musique” Dardanus, and from the less familiar “opéra-ballet” Le Temple de la Gloire.   Rameau was a mature composer of fifty before he completed his first opera - Hippolyte et Aricie  (1733). Over the next six years, the dispute between the conservative Lullistes (i.e., Jean-Baptiste Lully) and the Ramistes continued to rage, climaxing with the semi-mythological tragedy Dardanus in 1739.  The furor eventually abated, however, and Dardanus was acclaimed as one of Rameau’s finest achievements. Le temple de la gloire  - a commission celebrating France’s victory over British and Imperial forces at the Battle of Fontenoy - was completed in 1745.
