Les Talens Lyriques & Christophe Rousset - Pergolesi: Stabat Mater - BBC Music Magazine

Performance 4*
Recording 5*

Soprano Sandrine Piau finds just the right balance between beauty of sound and fervent expressivity. She’s partnered by the young countertenor Christopher Lowrey, who combines lucid diction with an aptly plangent sound – always beautifully controlled. Though they’re rather different musical personalities, the two singers respond to each other with particular sensitivity and their voices plait together exquisitely.'
