Sabine Devieilhe - Rameau: "Le Grand Théâtre de l’Amour"

The young French lyric-coloratura soprano Sabine Devieilhe has recorded a ravishing programme of excerpts from operas by Rameau with conductor Alexis Kossenko and his ensemble Les Ambassadeurs.

Sabine Devieilhe has been described as a singer “whose upper register, like her virtuosity, appears limitless, while her verbal sense and dramatic engagement are breathtaking”. Both her achievement and her potential were recognised at the 2013 Victoires de la Musique Classique, France’s equivalent of the Grammys, where she won the award in the category for ‘Révélation artiste lyrique’.

This Rameau collection features numbers from operas such as Hippolyte et Aricie, Les Indes Galantes, Les Boréades, Pygmalion, Les Paladins, Naïs, Anacréon, Zoroastre, Zaïs, Dardanus, Castor et Pollux and Platée. Joining Sabine Devieilhe, Alexis Kossenko and Les Ambassadeurs are other young singers: the French baritone Florian Sempey, the British tenor Samuel Boden and Le Jeune Chœur de Paris.
