About

"The French music of the 17th and 18th centuries has changed my life both literally and metaphorically: having trained as a harpist, I never imagined I might one day embark on a singing career. Nevertheless, in an incredibly fertile profusion of music, a series of encounters led me into this Baroque adventure where imagination and rigour call the tune, and permanently influenced my approach to all kinds of music. The triumph of Love... Beyond that slightly pompous formula lies a less optimistic reality. The god of love, mischievous and implacable by turns, holds humanity in his snares. His triumph is rarely that of his victims.

My friend and musical partner Jerome and I delighted in exploring together this territory which, if not entirely virgin land, is always surprising, where the hegemony of mere vocalism is banished, where the apparent antagonism between declamation and music is resolved in a perfect balance. How much Lully's Atys has in common with Debussy's Pelleas et Melisande! With this album, I was keen to return to a repertoire that, like Pandora's Box, opened up every conceivable possibility for me." - Sandrine Piau, June 2011

Soprano Sandrine Piau's new project is dedicated to French baroque repertoire, offering a wide range of beautiful arias by Rameau, Lully, Campra etc in a 100-year journey that mixes very famous music with little-known pieces, such as arias by Grétry or Sacchini.

Sandrine Piau and Jérôme Correas, a former singer, founder and music director of Les Paladins, have worked together on a regular basis since their early careers, especially with William Christie. This new release is the 10th recital of Sandrine Piau on Naïve and 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of their collaboration.
