Summary

(This text has been automatically translated by Google translate)
You could compare Rameau's importance as a theorist with that of Newton. Because just as Newton broke the light into separate colors with a prism, Rameau described how a certain sound could be broken down into overtones (and even 'undertones', which is actually nonsense, but has had a major influence on 19th-century music theory. ). Rameau - who viewed music as the science that gave birth to other sciences - would certainly have liked that he was especially remembered as the author of the Traité de l'harmonie (1722) and other tracts. The documentary on this DVD gives a more complete picture of Rameau. In this way we get to know him not only as one of the most important music theorists ever, but also as a brilliant church musician, genius instrumentalist, passionate entertainer and as the 'greatest composer of dance music for Stravinsky' (according to Christie). Somewhere Christie suggests that he would prefer to take the team with which he performs Rameau's theater works to Las Vegas, to get a sense of the kind of entertainment Rameau's Les Indes Galantes offered. During the credits we even see Christie dancing on the Danse des Sauvages. The DVD also includes a performance of the impressive motet In Convertendo (Psalm 126), whose daring chromatic gulp is a grandiose expression of the opposite affects of 'sowing in tears' and 'harvesting with cheers'.
