THE ART OF HÉLÈNE BRUNET
Vocal expression and virtuosity in Baroque opera

Savor the arresting joy of soprano Hélène Brunet and rediscover the captivating energy of ensemble L’Harmonie des saisons by viewing from your home the launch concert of the Solfeggio CD.
 
With “her singing of perfect beauty and her most radiant stage presence”, soprano Hélène Brunet is perfectly at ease in the baroque repertoire, which she renders with singular nuance and conviction. With a unique timbre, her voice embodies all the expressive registers demanded by 18th century opera. These arias range from despair to fury, sadness to happiness, as the most virtuoso bel canto is revealed in refreshing melodic profusion. The program will highlight contrasting baroque opera arias by the Venetian Antonio Vivaldi and the Neapolitan Leonardo Vinci as well as delightful excerpts from Handel’s Acis and Galatea.
