《进口CD:拉莫:达耳达诺斯》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, Torontos award-winning period instrument orchestra, recorded music of the French baroque. The two suites featured on this CD are drawn from Rameaus 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 Rameaus finest achievements. Le temple de la gloire - a commission celebrating Frances victory over British and Imperial forces at the Battle of Fontenoy - was completed in 1745.
