The libretto is characterised by dark drama and an impeccable mastery of verse, while the music reveals great skill and an extraordinarily individual style. Gervais stands out from Lully's other successors in his feeling for complex harmonies, sudden dramatic interruptions, showy melodies and vocal and instrumental virtuosity. The resurrection of this work after two-and-a-half centuries of oblivion required complicated work and revision on the part of the researchers and publishers, as the score survived only in an incomplete state. György Vashegyi will conduct a brilliant cast at the head of his orchestra and chorus in order to assure that the modern Hungarian première of Hypermnestre takes place under the best possible circumstances.
