After initially making her name in Baroque music performance working with such conductors as William Christie, Philippe Herreweghe, Christophe Rousset, Emmanuelle Haïm, Sigiswald Kuijken, Gustav Leonhardt and René Jacobs, Sandrine Piau today possesses a broad repertoire mirrored by her substantial discography, and has confirmed her key position in the new generation of French singers.

In the opera house she has appeared to great acclaim. She has also forged a successful career on the recital circuit, and has already produced a string of highly regarded recordings. Her CD of Mozart opera arias with the Freiburger Barockorchester won a Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, while her Handel album with Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques was named ‘Editor’s Choice’ by Gramophone and won the Stanley Sadie Handel Recording Prize for the year 2005. Her CD of Vivaldi’s motets with Ottavio Dantone and the Accademia Bizantina was voted Baroque Recording of the year at the Midem Classical Awards.

Her new CD, entitled “Evocation”, is a selection of poetic melodies on the theme of women, and includes several songs from the late romantic period. The composers represented - Chausson, Strauss, Debussy, Zemlinsky, Koechlin and Schoenberg - were all active during the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th century.
