Description

La Damnation De Faust (CD) - DiDonato, Spyres, Courjal

LABEL: Erato
RELEASE DATE: 12/6/2019

`The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote,` is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust.

The composer designated this thrilling hybrid of oratorio and opera a `légende dramatique`. Following in the triumphant footsteps of Les Troyens, also recorded at the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg, this performance reunites Nelson and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg with singers Michael Spyres, Joyce DiDonato and Nicolas Courjal.

This recording was made in the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg in April 2019, two years after Nelson, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and a superb cast including Joyce DiDonato, Michael Spyres and Nicolas Courjal brought Berlioz`s Les Troyens to life in the same venue. The associated Erato recording of the huge two-part opera has gone on to win unalloyed praise and multiple major prizes.

As the New York Times wrote: `Berlioz`s epic opera has rarely been given such luxury treatment as in this magnificent live recording from France.`
