About

Handel: Between Heaven and Earth (OP30484)
"French soprano Sandrine Piau, despite her frequent appearances on Baroque recordings, may not seem a first choice for the sheer athleticism of Handel, but wait until you hear her. Piau substitutes grace, precision, and sheer beauty for brawn, and the results are astonishing. She chooses arias ideally suited to her talents. "Rejoice greatly," from Messiah, is full of spiky flash, and lengthy pieces like "Prophetic raptures swell my breast" (track 12), from Joseph and His Brethren, are beautifully developed, with Piau sliding with impossible smoothness into high notes in the later stages. Passagework in faster pieces is a shower of bright sparks.. The Accademia Bizantina under violinist/director Stefano Montanari provides the more conventional zip that lets Piau's subtler approach weave its remarkable spell...this is a superb vocal recording." - Allmusic.com

Handel: Arias & Duets with Sara Mingardo (OP30483)
Two of today’s most accomplished and critically acclaimed interpreters of early and baroque music, the singers Sara Mingardo and Sandrine Piau, combined for this best-selling 2009 recording of arias and duos from Handel’s operas Radamisto, Flavio, Poro, Tamerlano, Rinaldo, Orlando, Alessandro, Deidamia, Amadigi and Ottone. They are accompanied by the world-renowned Concerto Italiano and its conductor Rinaldo Alessandrini.

Simply magnificent...the singing is of a miraculous standard throughout, and the performances are consummately insightful and naturalistic.” - Gramophone Editor’s Choice
