Sandrine Piau - Handel: Enchantresses - MusicWeb International
The collection contains several of Handel’s greatest and most beautiful arias; it is in the slow ones where Piau stands out, as her refined and expressive voice is there allowed the space to bloom.
Piau’s singing is beautifully effective; she has the ability to express profoundly and distinctively emotions every character’s perspective. In a polished and accomplished performance, her lines are long and secure, and her phrasing is adept, revealing an attractive tone.
Sandrine Piau’s new album is no run-of-the-mill addition to an already bulging discography of Handel collections. She provides consistently accomplished performances which admirably serve Handel’s music.
