“French Society of Musicology: scores of Esther and Athalie”
Penultimate tragedy of Racine, Esther was written for the “Demoiselles” of the royal house of Saint-Cyr, founded at the initiative of Madame de Maintenon, wife of Louis XIV. It opened in this institution a short-lived tradition of theater with musical interludes. The music involves a three-part instrumental ensemble (prelude, overture, interlude), a choir of girls from Esther’s retinue, solos and vocal ensembles. This edition displays for the first time the declaimed text, preserved in old spelling, and the entire music drawn up from sources contemporary with the creation of the work.
Full score (foreword in French and English, 12 fac-siimiles)
