Interview with NetNebraska's Gen Randall

In order to appease the somewhat provincial tastes of King Louis XV, composer Jean-Philippe Rameau and his librettist Voltaire altered the original version of Le Temple de la Gloire, and for centuries it was lost.  The manuscript was discovered-at the University of California, Berkeley's Jean Hargrove Music Library and was brought to the attention of Philharmonia Baroque conductor Nicholas McGegan.  For decades, maestro McGegan dreamed of reviving the original work-a dream realized in April 2017 through a partnership between the PBO, Cal Performances at UC Berkeley, Centre de musique de Versailles in France and New York Baroque Dance Company.

Maestro McGegan sat down with NetNebraska's Gen Randall to discuss the recording. Listen to the attached file
