The year 2022 marks the 400th Anniversary of the birth of one of French literature’s greatest geniuses: Molière.

His admirers thought they knew everything about his art, but they long remained deaf to an essential element in his output: the music.

In 1990, William Christie finally provided the opportunity to discover this domain, with Marc- Antoine Charpentier’s settings giving new depth to and shedding new light on the well-known text of Le Malade imaginaire.

This major recording opened up unexpected perspectives on an unjustly forgotten heritage. Experience it anew on this reissued double-album edition!
