»Ah, I have lost her!«

Anaïk Morel (Mezzo-soprano)
Mathias Vidal (Tenor)
Philharmonic Choir Bonn
Les Musiciens du Louvre
Sébastien Rouland (Conductor)

Christoph Willibald Gluck:
‘Orphée et Euridice’ (Paris version), Excerpts

Joseph Haydn:
‘L’anima del filosofo ossia Orfeo ed Euridice’, Hob. XXVIII:13, Excerpts

Hector Berlioz:
‘Les nuits d’été’. Song cycle, op. 7

Charles Gounod:
‘Roméo et Juliette’, Excerpts

Jacques Offenbach:
‘Orphée aux enfers’, Excerpts

Les Musiciens du Louvre will devote  themselves to the two most famous pairs of lovers in history: Orpheus and Eurydice, and Romeo and Juliet. Countless times they have been given literary treatment, set to music and placed on stage. The fate of the ancient mythological couple fascinated both Gluck and Haydn – and was later satirised in an Offenbach operetta. Shakespeare's play was transformed into a romantic opera in Charles Gounod's »Roméo et Juliette«, and Hector Berlioz produced the most beautiful of 'midsummer night's dreams' in riveting orchestral songs. With their survey of famous love stories, this prize-winning period performance ensemble from France now conquers the romantic repertoire!
