    “The voices and instrumentalists of Le Concert Spirituel bring these works into fascinating dialogue.”

  • NONO: Intolleranza 1960

    NONO: Intolleranza 1960

    “This smacks of champagne socialism: an opera-going elite, in €330 seats, watching the plights of poor migrants set to an ultra-avant-garde score.”

    BOWLES: A Picnic Cantata

    “It feels like a lark: the creators clearly enjoyed their collaboration and were not interested in making a major statement. Ephemerality is coded in its DNA.”

    POULENC: La Voix Humaine

    “Véronique Gens is impressive, and her instrument remains in remarkably good shape. She finds the brittleness and pathos in the role without recourse to any cheap effects.”

  • RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Christmas Eve

    RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Christmas Eve

    “It features a lush, spirited score and a charming libretto, and Christof Loy’s production enlivens it with sparkling modernity and a light hand.”

  • DESSAU: Lanzelot
    Opera & Oratorio June 2023

    DESSAU: Lanzelot

    “This political satire is a daring outcry against totalitarianism from within East Germany. Over the past fifty years, it’s retained its bite.”

  • CHERUBINI: Les Abencérages
    Opera & Oratorio June 2023

    CHERUBINI: Les Abencérages

    “This is a truly rewarding opera, and this recording makes the best possible case for it.”
