Rene Jacobs – conductor

As New York is preparing to be gripped by Lully-fever (with the arrival of the production of Atys by Les Arts Florissants), I was discussing this upload with someone who was completely unable to locate it via Yahoo or Google searches. Therefore I have renewed the Rapidshare links and am reposting it.

This is an exceptionally rare souvenir of the only Lully opera Jacobs has ever conducted and the only French Baroque work until Platee this season in Amsterdam. My recollection is that this production was widely considered to not be a success and a rumored recording never took place. However, upon listening, I find it a very persuasive performance of one of my favorite Lully operas!

The original tapes (acquired in a trade from a friend) said that the title role was sung by Jose van Dam who did perform the role in Paris, but listening to the performance, it was clear to me that it was NOT van Dam; it sounded to me more like Laurent Naouri. Some Googling turned up that the production moved from Paris to Montpellier a few months later and indeed it is Naouri as Roland.
