Descriptions du produit
Imaginez les soupers du Roi-Soleil, le faste d'une cour réunie pour contempler son souverain à table et celui-ci prenant le pouls de son royaume. Il fallait des musiques de circonstance que Couperin mais également Telemann composèrent avec zèle. Le cas de Michel Richard Delalande est remarquable parce que ce dernier pousse l'art de la musique d'accompagnement à son sommet. Cinq heures de musique sont enregistrées, mais on sait que des dizaines de partitions manquent à l'appel. Quelle édifiante perspective que cette reconstitution des ambiances de l'époque ! Certes, ce sont des musiques fonctionnelles, mais d'une telle richesse, aussi savoureuses que les mets dégustés par le roi, parfois humoristiques et souvent éclatantes de vie. Les vents, les violons, les percussions réunis par l'ensemble La Symphonie du Marais explorent ces musiques de danse et de cérémonie qui mêlent une fantastique variété de couleurs et de climats. Aucune sécheresse d'inspiration dans ces portraits qui valent ceux de Monsieur de Voltaire. On y devine les perruques et les jeux de la noblesse. Un fascinant spectacle historique et musical ! --Pierre Graveleau

It is hard to believe that Delalande is so unknown. This music is so special that it really belongs in all classical music collection. Even though there is no other disc available, I could not imagine a better performance than this.
Delalande is, for some people who like serious music, an unknown compositor. This CD is a beautiful work and shows that this compositor has an important place among the great masters of the Baroque music.
As Reyne pointed out in his liner notes, until then, Delalande's Table Music had been both one of the most famous compositions of the French baroque era, and one of the most unknown ones. When the early pioneers, from Roger Désormière in 1946, still in the 78s era, on Oiseau Lyre OL 141-142 (reissued by Dante, Alceste * Cadmus et Hermione * Symphony) to Jean-François Paillard for Erato (successive recordings in 1957, 1963 and 1984, all for Erato, the latter on Delalande - Simphonies Pour Les Soupers Du Roy or Delalande: Concert de Trompettes / Trois Caprices), by way of Roland Douatte, Pierre Colombo, Louis de Froment in the 1960s, Bernard Wahl and Paul Kuentz in the 1960s, and Günter Kehr in the 1970s, recorded selections from the Symphonies, they were met with great popular success. But those selections barely scratched the surface. Désormière's selection ran 12 minutes and Colombo reproduced the same program. The selections of Douatte and Wahl were only a part of their respective program, paired with pieces by other French composers of the era. Paillard's first recording in 1957 made up one side of a 10" LP and ran 14 minutes, and Paul Kuentz' selections on Archiv filled only one LP side, the other being devoted to symphonies of Mouret, while De Froment's Symphonies mated other instrumental pieces of Delalande. So the first full-LP-timed selection was the second recording of Paillard, in 1963, followed by Günter Kehr in 1975 and Paillard again in 1984: and that was still a short measure (less than 50 minutes), compared to the complete music of Delalande's Symphonies.
That relative scarcity derived from the fact no complete edition was ever published, or at least had not been when Reyne made his recording in 1990 (but I haven't found trace of a publication since, although Gallica, the online service of Bibliothèque Nationale de France, has made available online facsimiles of the manuscript sources). The situation with these manuscript sources is a complicated one and I won't go into it in this review, I refer the reader interested to my review of the complete Harmonia Mundi set. Anyway, what Reyne offered was not exactly the "complete" Symphonies, first because it is not entirely clear what the "complete" Symphonies really are, an earlier collection of those played under Louis the 14th or a later collection gathered in the years of the Sun-King's successor, Louis the 15th, made after the death of Delalande in a totally reshuffled order, and including many pieces from Delalande's ballets and divertissements which were not part of the original Symphonies for the King's Suppers: Reyne played the earlier and more "authentic" collection, but even there, he apparently omitted a few numbers in some suites. Also, he included, as an opener, the "concert of trumpets" which had been added to the Symphonies in the later collection but were not part of them in the earlier one.
Still, with all that, Reyne offered 5 hours of music, and it was 5 hours of sheer enjoyment, thanks to his skilful instrumentations (the manuscripts come in the form of two- or three-part scores with hardly any indication of instrumentation, so it falls on each interpreter to provide his own), his free use of percussion instruments in the dance numbers, adding great color and dynamism, and his genuine sense of authentic style and phrasings.
Sadly, Harmonia Mundi let that set lapse out of its current catalog, and for years it was offered at steep prices on the marketplace. Simultaneously with the complete set, Harmonia Mundi released this CD of selections, 67 minutes of them, 27 numbers out of the set's 158. Better than nothing I guess, and ideal for those who'd want to follow a diet of music feasting, but nonetheless frustrating for the nearly 4-hours of equally valuable music it omits.
But the good news now is that one doesn't need to settle for less anymore: Harmonia Mundi has announced, for August, the reissue of the complete set, Delalande Complete Symphonies, and at budget price. For those who'd still be on a diet of music feasting, this CD of selections, or its reissue on Harmonia Mundi's budget collection "Musique d'abord", Delalande: Symphonies Pour Les Soupers Du Roy, remains the choice.
