Delphine Galou

Delphine Galou (Contralto)

Born: 1977, Paris

Nationality: French

Artist's website:

The French contralto Delphine Galou (b.1977) read philosophy at the Sorbonne alongside her vocal studies; in 2004 she was selected as ‘Discovery of the Year’ by the French association for the Promotion of Young Artists, and shortly afterwards joined the young artist programme at the Opéra national du Rhin. Though her operatic repertoire encompasses Humperdinck’s Hänsel and Britten’s Lucretia and Hermia, she specialises in baroque repertoire, with key roles including Bradamante in Handel’s Alcina, the title-roles in his Giulio Cesare, [Rinaldo and Alessandro and Vivaldi’s Orlando Furioso.

Her discography includes the title-role in the Francesco Feo rarity San Francesco di Sales under Fabio Biondi (‘Galou’s willowy contralto brings great nobility to San Francesco’ – Gramophone), Il Teuzzone, Orlando Furioso and L’Incoronazione di Dario as part of Naïve’s Vivaldi Edition, and her debut solo recording Agitata (shortlisted for a Gramophone Award in 2018).
