Hyver: Les Boréades


Release date : Oct 2005

PDF Booklet

The cantata form blossomed in France during the first third of the 18th century and quickly departed from the original model from Italy and became freer. The French cantatas written for one voice and basso continuo and few instruments resembles a short piece of tragedy in music just as much as the Italian cantata resembles a fragment of a serious opera.
