Sandrine Piau


French soprano Sandrine Piau was born in Paris in 1965 and trained as a harpist before embarking on a career as a singer. She is widely recognised as one of today’s finest baroque sopranos and works regularly with French-based groups in particular, including William Christie and Les Arts Florissant, Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques, and Emmanuelle Haïm and Le Concert d’Astrée. Notable recordings include Gabriel in Haydn’s The Creation with Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort on Signum, Messiah (in the 1754 version) with Hervé Niquet and Le Concert Spirituel on Alpha, and Purcell’s King Arthur with Christie, which won Gramophone’s Early Opera Award in 1996. Further afield, her operatic repertoire includes Tytania in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Soeur Constance in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmelites, and Debussy’s Mélisande.
