Les Ombres, here assembled in chamber orchestra formation, places in perspective the homonymous masterpieces of Handel, Marais, and Destouches. In this highly theatrical programme, the musicians trace an imaginative trajectory through the moving expressiveness of the tragédie lyrique, the intimate poetry of the French cantata, and the blazing passion of Handelian opera. Under the spell of the Baroque, the seductive Semele finds her ideal partner in music.
