Monsigny and Sedaine's brilliant opera-comique Le Deserteur, was an immediate and lasting success for its melodic charms and musical variety, its blend of comedy with moments of great sentiment and pathos, and its intellectual radicalism prefiguring the humanitarian ideas of the 19th century Romantics. This recording features the musical items only from this forerunner of the ' rescue' opera, in which the heroine Louise extricates her fiance Alexis from prison and a death sentence.
