Handel:

Scoglio d'immota fronte (from Scipione)

Verdi piante, erbette liete (from Orlando)

Che sento?...Se pietà di me non senti (from Giulio Cesare)

L'amor ed il destin (from Partenope)

Ah! spietato (from Amadigi di Gaula)

Brilla nell' alma un non inteso ancor (from Alessandro)

Ombre piante, urne funeste (from Rodelinda)

Faramondo: Combattuta da due venti

Cor di padre (from Tamerlano)

M'ai resa infelice (from Deidamia)

Son qual stanco pellegrino (from Arianna in Creta)


This 2004 recording is far more than just a recital by a prima donna: it is a perfectly balanced dialogue between Piau and Rousset, both indelibly marked by their work with William Christie, the former from her discovery of early vocal music, the latter from his time as assistant leader of Les Arts Florissants before forming his own ensemble in 1991. The rapport between soprano and conductor has blossomed over time, notably through their collaboration, since 1994, on the operatic works of Handel. Their complicity reveals the deep humanity of Handel’s heroines behind the masks. Recorded in 2004 & awarded Gramophone Editor’s Choice in the UK.

“the French soprano is at the heart of a everything that is stylish and commanding here. Her accomplished technique, and the clarity of her vocal production, is audible from the off...Thus she encompasses all the moods and qualities required of these arias from introspective mulling to full-scale theatrical dynamism. All the while Rousset and his forces accompany with felicitous colour and rhythmic energy.” MusicWeb International, 12th November 2013

“Sandrine Piau and Christophe Rousset have been consistently stylish and perceptive Handelians together. Their musical flair and dramatic intelligence is marvellously captured here, and they have chosen arias that explore the full range of Handel's genius.
The experience starts with the spectacular 'Scoglio d'immota fronte', and the subsequent sequence weaves through wonderful contrasts.
It's hard to capture the full dramatic sense and vivid personality of Handel's opera characters in a studio recital, yet they hit the bullseye every time, bringing out Cleopatra's despair, Rodelinda's eloquent grief for her apparently deceased husband, the heartbroken sorceress Melissa in Amadigi di Gaula, Deidamia's distress at losing Achilles to the Trojan war, and Partenope's gorgeous charisma.
Although some da capo sections stray a little too far from Handel's notation for the comfort of scholars, they all enhance the drama of the text, and each cadenza, showing panache and taste, is a breath of fresh air. The playing of Les Talens Lyriques is a model of clarity, vitality and theatrical wit. It was an inspired decision to close the recital with the sublime understatement of 'Son qual stanco', featuring a heartbreaking cello solo by Atsushi Sakaï. Rousset and Piau achieve the perfect synthesis of elegance, extravagance and emotion. This is may be the finest recital of Handel arias ever recorded.”
