“The orchestra, similar in size to the conductorless Orpheus, owes as much of its clean and crisp sound to its conductor, Mathieu Lussier, as it does to the fact it is string-dominated, with a mere pair of oboes, a pair of horns, and a bassoon. Yet even the woods and brass made a fine performance in Rameau’s bouncy work, especially so in a lovely bassoon obbligato. The final section, a toe-tapping contra dance, reveled in French Baroque majesty.”
