Paris, 1700. In Café Laurent, on the corner of Rue Dauphine and Rue Christine, a whole new literary and musical genre sees the light of life, initiated by the circle around poet Jean-Baptiste Rousseau. The base is Italian, the result is the Cantate Française. In order to pander his beautifully voiced mistress Mlle de Louvancourt, Rousseau wrote poems inspired by mythology, that he had put to music by befriended composers. It wasn’t long before this turned out to be a recipe for success.

One of the first composers of this new genre was Nicolas Bernier. And his craftsmanship immediately exceeded that of many of his contemporaries by far. Where others copied the Italian style without much inspiration and creativity, Bernier found no match in his ability to combine the French with the Italian style, the latter of which he picked up as a pupil of the Italian composer Antonio Caldara. He wrote seven books with cantatas that have been frequently staged up till the French Revolution.

Most of his work has never been recorded though. We selected three cantatas: Diane, Proserpine and Médée. These mythological women are each transformations of Hécate, the goddess with the three faces. As protector of the hunt, she appears as Diane. As goddess of the night she turns into Proserpine. Médée on the other hand is her primary priestess.

From a musical point of view, Diane is the most light-footed cantata, Prosperine the most experimental and Médée the most dramatic one. Bernier succeeds masterfully to entangle the airiness of the Divertissement with the musical and dramatic richness of a full-grown opera in these three modest chamber operas.

For these recordings, conductor Korneel Bernolet, the ensemble Apotheosis and young Belgian soprano Lieselot De Wilde found in each other the perfect partner to give each of these three women an individual character with dramatic and vocal personality.

We want to make recordings that are not just enjoyable: we want you to start to daydream, to secretly try to dance the minuet all through your living room, to imagine yourself at the French Court, or to let a tear drop in your lap, overwhelmed by the gentle yearning that the French made tangible through their arts so masterfully.

If you like the prospect of giving breath to such pure and beautiful emotions, you can help us realise that by means of a gift.
Next to our eternal gratitude, you receive our irrepressible desire to get the recordings going!

Greetings from Korneel, Lieselot, Caroline, Jan, Ronan and Sofie
