Notes and Editorial Reviews

The characters brought to life in the Baroque-era operas of great composers such as Handel and Vivaldi - protagonists whose passions, loves, misfortunes, hopes, and longings unfold before us on stage - are, in reality, musical depictions of the myriad journeys experienced by the human soul. The magnificent mezzo-soprano Julie Boulianne gives to the chosen arias all their grandeur, their grace and their beauty and the quality of the ensemble Clavecin en concert's playing is once again irreproachable. This album is gorgeous, to say the least!
