André Campra (1660-1744)

Links

Campra. L'Europe Galante (Opéra-ballet, 1697). William Christie, Les Arts Florissants. Broadcast from the 2005 Ambronay Festival. L'Europe Galante is arguably the second most important opéra-ballet after Rameau's Les Indes Gallantes, which has many similarities to its illustrious predecessor, in particular the Turkish entrées.

Maurice Barthélemy. André Campra 1660-1744: Étude biographique et musicologique. (In French.) 334 pages. Actes Sud. (Revised edition, 1993). FR | CA

Facsimile Edition

Tancrède (Paris Opéra, 1702) - tragédie en musique by André Campra and Antoine Danchet, Introduction by Antonia L. Banducci, a biography of André Campra by James R. Anthony, and a commentary on three notated dances from the opera by Judith L. Schwartz. "The introduction to Tancrède includes a biography of the librettist, Antoine Danchet, extensive discussions of the Tancrède libretto and score, and overviews of the opera's performance history and dramatic parodies. The full orchestral score reproduced in facsimile dates from 1738 and reflects Campra's revision from a five-part to a four-part string texture. To provide scholars and performers with complete access to the original work, an appendix to the edition offers a transcription of the original fifth part (the quinte de violon) as well as several other sections of the original, which Danchet and Campra subsequently revised."
