Purcell - Birthday Odes for Queen Mary

The King'S Consort

Klassiek - Verschenen op 24 september 2021 | VIVAT

Hi-Res Booklet
For over thirty years Robert King and his King's Consort have founded their reputation on their interpretation of Purcell's music. Their complete recording in 1988 of the English composer's Odes caused a sensation. This new album, released by Vivat which is Robert King's own label founded in 2013, was recorded in the generous acoustics of the Fairfield Halls, South London's largest and recently restored arts centre. This album is therefore a true return to his roots.Leading a fine array of soloists, including Carolyn Sampson, Iestyn Davies, Charles Daniels and Matthew Brook, Robert King has chosen for this disc two festive Odes written for Queen Mary and a more melancholy one for King James II, before his abdication and exile to France, where he was supported by his cousin, King Louis XIV. These compositions are among Purcell's best and most original, with their succession of overtures, varied choruses, arias and pleasant ritornelli.As Robert King himself points out, the context of this recording, made in 2020 at the height of the global pandemic, and with appropriate social distancing, is curiously reminiscent of the plague epidemic which Purcell survived in 1665, during which fifteen percent of London's population died. This gloomy climate, coupled with Robert King's own vicissitudes, surely contributed to the nostalgic tone that shrouds his new approach to the admirable music of Henry Purcell. © François Hudry/Qobuz
