André-Ernest-Modeste Grétry was the greatest French composer of opéra-comique in the eighteenth century. His librettist for Le Magnifique, Jean-Michel Sedaine, took a tale by La Fontaine and fashioned it into a compelling libretto. Grétry responded with an outstanding score, including one of the first programmatic overtures in musical history. His expressive love music, and extended preludes and postludes, add to the theatrical variety of this important and varied opera.

 "... The work is effective musically, with many a good tune to delight the ear... The recording is a delight, with youthful voices in full cry. Conductor Brown keeps the music light..."

Charles H Parsons - American Record Guide - May/June 2013


 "...All in all this disc offers a very welcome opportunity to get to know another work by one of the great but still little known masters of eighteenth century opera..."   

John Sheppard - MusicWeb-International.com  - April 2013

 "... This recording is an unexpected delight, and I commed both Ryan Brown for his superb musical direction and the foresight of Naxos to record this. Bravo, one and all!"

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - March/April 2013
