Jordi Savall à l'opéra royal


Jordi Savall, one of my heroes, conducted the Concert des Nations orchestra in a fabulous rendering of Jean-Philippe Rameau's Naïs (1748), Les Indes Galantes (1735), Zoroastre (1749) and Les Boréades (1764) orchestra suites composed for king Louis XV. Bravo, bravissimo.

Although I am not familiar with that music, I can imagine what an exciting experience this must have been! And I really like that first picture...I'm sure it wasn't easy to get that!

Just being in the place would be wonderful. Just hearing the music would be uplifting. But both together? Ahh!

Any concert would be terrific at this venue (I suspect). And, how could I possibly be mad at you?! : )

It looks a wonderful theatre. The kind of place to get dressed up for!

You're making me feel worse for missing a classical concert here last Saturday... Not the same calibre of theatre, though!!

These are stunning shots, Ciel! I like the standing orchestra in the first and the wonderful columns of the second. I can sense the wonder of hearing them play. Wonderful!!
