Les Délices - Myths & Allegories

Myths & Allegories

Rising-star soprano Clara Rottsolk is featured in this program, which was released as Les Délices’ second CD recording in November 2012. Myths & Allegories weaves dramatic depictions of tales from Homer’s Odyssey together with instrumental chamber music inspired by Greek mythology, and features cantatas by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (Le Sommeil d’Ulisse) and Thomas-Louis Bourgeois (Les Sirènes). The hero Ulysses confronts storms at sea, shipwrecks, the tantalizing allure of siren songs, and encounters with the Cyclopes – all set to music – in the course of this colorful, fantastic program. Even Ulysses’ long-faithful wife pines from afar as symbolized by Jean-Féry Rebel’s violin sonata La Fidelle.
