This is an anthology with a difference. It consists of soprano arias, a duet and a trio, and a few orchestral pieces, covering stage works from Hippolyte et Aricie (1733) to Les Paladins (1760). In his booklet-note, Alexis Kossenko takes a quotation from Rameau’s Traite de l’harmonie as a superscription: ‘True music is the language of the heart.’ Cupid is the director of this ‘grand theatre’ and ‘we powerless humans [are] his actors, no, his marionettes’. Kossenko has conceived a miniature opera: his selection takes an imaginary heroine from innocence to, perhaps, ‘the incarnation of Love Triumphant’. On her journey she experiences desire, despair and a host of other emotions.

Actually, it doesn’t really work – La Folie’s parody of an Italian aria in Platee is hardly a paradigm of madness, for instance – but it makes for an entertaining sequence. One result of treating these disparate numbers as an integrated whole is that some of the pieces practically trip over one another: an air from Les Indes galantes leads straight into the overture to Pygmalion, to be abruptly followed by an air from Les Paladins and a contredanse from Les fetes de l’Hymen et de l’Amour.

What comes across is the marvellous variety of Rameau’s invention, whether it be the maddeningly catchy ‘Air pour les Sauvages’ in Les Indes galantes or the achingly beautiful ‘Tristes apprets’ from Castor et Pollux. Sabine Devieilhe gets everything right, with excellent support from Les Ambassadeurs. Texts are provided, but the anonymous translators don’t know their tambourins from their tambourines. -- Richard Lawrence, Gramophone
