Le Concert Spirituel Herve Niquet

In 1743, two years before Rameau’s Platée, Boismortier created an extraordinarily modern and madcap “comic ballet”, Don Quichotte chez la Duchesse. As the exuberant plot unfurls, Cervantes’ hero encounters monsters, enchanters, princesses and people from Japan, making for plenty of offbeat and audacious dances and choruses. Musical beauty rubs shoulders with satirical and irreverent comedy. A choice work for Hervé Niquet, who leads his Concert Spirituel with unparalleled energy!
