Lully's Ballet royal de la Naissance de Vénus was written in 1665 when Lully and his patron, King Louis XIV of France, were at the height of their powers. With more than ten years as court composer under his belt, Lully had revolutionized the sound of the ballet de cour, replacing stately and perhaps stodgy dances with a variety of lively rhythms borrowed from social dancing. Then came the commission, from the king himself, for the Ballet royal de la Naissance de Vénus, to be danced by his sister-in-law, Henrietta of England. This was a splendid work that combined dance, music (including choruses and songs), poetry, and the considerable best of the court's stagecrafters, all in service of a two-section work, the first depicting the creation of the goddess Venus, and the second praising her power across the universe. It is doubtless a bit difficult to imagine the impact this work must have had from the music alone; what one hears is a long sequence of short dances and a lot of the reigning tonality of F minor. However, Les Talens Lyriques and their director, Christophe Rousset, give it their all, with zippy, punchy strings, plenty of energy, and clear vocal and choral components. Museums looking for music to accompany exhibitions of French 17th century art might tuck a copy of this album away, and anyone interested in the court ballet, still largely unexplored by performers, should be sure to acquire it.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
