 Marie Kalinine Soloist
 Hervé Niquet Conductor

A contemporary of Mozart, Johann Christoph Vogel died at an early age. Forward looking in approach, this composer of a tormented provision sought to extend the operatic revolution undertaken by Gluck in the 1770s. First performed in 1786 at the Paris Opera, The Golden Fleece reveals that search for an expressive art demanded an all-embracing involvement from the performers and the music supplied with a sometimes unbearable intensity at the time forof its original performance. The heroine Medea, allows her despair to break out with the same emphasis as in the later representation of the character by Cherubini in 1797. It is no wonder that Berlioz considered Vogel as one of the pioneers of French Romanticism.

After recent successes Obtained by their recordings devoted to the sacred music, which is so close to all of them (Bouteiller, Striggio, The Prince), Hervé Niquet and Le Concert Spiritual return to of another of their great specialties, the lyric tragedy, with a new broad-scale operatic revival. Marie Kalinin, Judith Van Wanroij and Jean-Sébastien Bou embody to perfection those mythological figures so dear to French 18th century audiences. This opera will definitely surprise modern-day listeners by its clear Germanic influences all of which arise, ultimately, from the composer’s nationality!

 "...This is a performance which resonates with all the positive qualities of the music... It’s the perfect year to revive La Toison d’or ..."

Simon Heighes - International Record Review - April 2014

 "... the music is effective, with excellent writing for the chorus and orchestra, including a scene where Medea conjoures up a storm and Jason’s crew is shipwrecked. marie Kalinine is superb, whether raging at jason, summoning the Sibyl in an ’invocation’ or reflecting miserably on her situation. Judith Van Wanrij sings strongly as Hipsipyle ... Jean-Sébastien Bou is equally powerful as the duplicitous Jason. Hervé Niquet directs admirably. Vogel is a reakfind ..."

Richard Lawrence - Gramophone magazine - March 2014

"... Hervé Niquet’s direction is thoroughly idiomatic and he draws from Le Concert Spirituel some impressive playing of the richly rewarding score..."
