There’s a vigour and charm to the choruses and dances that is quite irresistible…All this is superbly performed by Václav Luks and his Czech chorus and orchestra. The principal soloists are, mostly, French or Belgian. As the much put-upon Alphise, Deborah Cachet is particularly forceful in ‘Songe affreux’This is a first-rate performance, on a par with Gardiner’s terrific recording on Erato.
