Eva Zaïcik & Le Consort - Venez chère ombre - Presto Classical

There’s a lovely vernal bloom to this Jardin des Voix alumna’s high-lying mezzo, and she’s fully alive to the taut drama of these concise French baroque cantatas, the majority of which receive their recording premieres here: Courbois’s Ariane, Clérambault’s Héro and Lefevbre’s Andromède spring vividly to life, and are worthy to be set alongside Handel’s Agrippina, Lucrezia and Armida, whilst flautist Anna Besson provides delectable support in Monteclair’s pastoral La Bergère.
