N°14 - Abbatiale


Stéphanie d'Oustrac - mezzo-soprano

Ensemble Amarillis                                     Héloïse Gaillard, Violaine Cochard - conductor

Dido, the Queen of Carthage overcome by love and abandoned; the Virgin Mary, a symbol of love, of motherhood, of grief. Two vulnerable figures who, between rapture and ecstasy, touch the heart of human passion and of baroque sensibilities. United by their interest in rediscoveries, Stéphanie d'Oustrac and the Ensemble Amarillis embody the infectious talent of the baroque revival. A programme which marries Cavalli's rediscovered La Didone with the most famous baroque passages from the works of Barbara Strozzi and 'The Divine' Monteverdi.
