La Malade Imaginaire
The newest addition to my music collection is this recording of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's music for this play of Moliere. It is done, of course, by William Christie and Les Arts Florissants, which means that it is worth its weight in gold.
I had the privilege of seeing Les Arts Florissants give a presentation of Lully's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. It was a memorable experience. Christie, the honorary Frenchman who I believe is from the American Midwest, gave a talk before the performance. That was really cool. This guy exudes enough culture to fill a football stadium. Anything by Les Arts Florissants is worth buying and listening to over and over again.
