  Amazon.com: Sandrine Piau - Handel Opera Seria: Music: Sandrine Piau,Christophe Rousset,Les Talens Lyriques,Georg ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
French soprano Sandrine Piau is not as readily known as other Handelians, at least on this side of the pond, but she is certainly among the most gifted of interpreters as she proves on this wonderful recording of opera arias specifically written for the soprano voice.
Her voice and singing style should appeal to both camps of opera lovers: devotees of the HIP movement and those who are afraid of HIP because of the stigma of "white, bland voices" that became a trademark of the movement.
Yet Piau's disc risks being overlooked in the USA since the French soprano is not quite a household name here (in spite of some marvellous solo recitals in her discography).

  BBC - Classical Review - Mozart: Opera Arias, Sandrine Piau   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Piau used to sing in the Radio France children's chorus, and it was through a child's eyes she first experienced the world of opera; her first solo role was Flora in Britten's Turn of the Screw, and she's able unerringly to find the almost naïve simplicity of utterance that's needed for these early Mozart heroines.
No matter what demands Mozart throws at his heroines, Piau is equal to the task, sometimes floating her bel canto over the soft string sound of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, before springing thrillingly into action in some scintillating semiquavers, virtuoso runs and trills that demand real flexibility across the full range of the voice.
Piau's Mozart Aria disc in a magazine, got the disc the next day, and since then have been just blown away by her artistry.

 Récital Sandrine Piau - Haendel - Opéra Lyon
On croit tout savoir du Haendel de Piau et l'on s'attend seulement à un beau moment de musique répétant un peu mécaniquement les trésors de l'enregistrement, puisque le programme lui-même s'assume comme une reprise de ces derniers.
Piau a la qualité rare de sembler flotter sans peine ("Se pieta" est à cet égard troublant à la fois de facilité et de simplicité dans la plainte, d'ascèse sonore), mais aussi cette pugnacité, cette virulence qui dans les airs brillants clouent le spectateur à son siège, de par la tempétueuse radiance de la voix.
A la fin du concert, pour une séance de dédicace bon enfant, Sandrine Piau, avec cette robe Pompadour relookée qui dit tout d'elle, comme le miroir "froufroutant" de son art ténu, avec un sourire, s'excuse presque de souffrir encore de quelques restes d'une récente laryngite.

Piau holds the last note with grace, fading into the air....
The bass recalls the sonority of a bassoon, with dry, rounded, well-articulated sounds: the tenor is "speaking" bright and open, the treble limpid and crystalline." And so does Piau use her voice, like an ethereal instrument, clear and pure.
Piau’s voice may not have the elegant sensuality of Véronique Gens, but Piau's careful phrasing and deft articulation of the musical line throw the structure of the songs into focus, allowing us to appreciate their beauty in pure form.

In this instance, Piau is taking on the opera arias of ye big, bald, and perpetually peruked master of musicke, George Frideric Handel.
These days, Piau isn't much better off herself, as her entry will have to compete in a market already graced by such talents as Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Sarah Connolly, Renée Fleming, and Emma Kirkby.
In slower music, it becomes apparent that Piau comes up a bit short in terms of expressiveness, and she has the tendency to be a little loud in passages where a lighter touch would have been more appropriate.

Piaus Koloraturgelaeufigkeit ist phaenomenal, ihre Hoehe sehr sicher und strahlend und auch ihr tiefes Register spricht besser an als bei vielen Soprankolleginnen.

The runs sparkle, the leaps land with pinpoint accuracy on every note, and the phrasing is executed with fiery dynamic impact, clear enunciation, and a forward drive that pulls us dancing along to a satisfying conclusion that we can only presume the composer would have relished.
If you've heard Fleming's very solid, tonally full-bodied rendition of this "Scoglio d'immota fronte" (slower than Piau by nearly a half-minute), you're certainly impressed by her command of the music and its dramatic aspects, but next to Piau, her perfectly respectable performance is earthbound, abetted by a weighty orchestral accompaniment.
For Piau, Christope Rousset's Les Talens Lyriques is a spry, nimble, and very responsive orchestra that bends and breathes and bobs and weaves according to the soloist's every expressive utterance.
