Opera album of the President of HAA awarded by German critics
HHA's President, György Vashegyi continued his "love affair" with French Baroque music with the recording of the performance of Jean-Philippe Rameau's 1749 opera entitled Naïs with the Orfeo Orchestra and the Purcell Choir in March 2017 at Müpa, Budapest. The album has gained the award of German music critics recently. Subtitled "Opéra pour la paix" (its prologue, at least, commemorates the 1748 Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle), Naïs features demanding and extended leading roles for soprano Chantal Santon-Jeffery (Naïs) and high tenor Reinoud Van Mechelen (Neptune), assisted by Florian Sempey and Thomas Dolié, in an everyday eighteenth-century tale of a lovesick god in disguise, a misinterpreted prophecy and an alternative version of the Olympic Games.
