[ Erato Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 5 November 2021

Great sorrow and great joy, expressed in in sacred and secular arias and cantatas, are the themes of Sabine Devieilhe's album of Bach and Handel. Recorded with the Pygmalion ensemble and conductor Raphaël Pichon, it features appearances by baritone Stéphane Degout and lutenist Thomas Dunford and includes Bach's cantatas 'Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut' and 'Jauchzet Gott in allen Lande', and excerpts from Handel's Brockes Passion and Giulio Cesare. "This is possibly the most personal programme I've recorded so far," says Sabine Devieilhe, "and I've been lucky enough to record it with the Pygmalion ensemble and my husband Raphaël Pichon. We really wanted to convey the idea of human emotion that at times goes beyond our understanding, and which creates music of extraordinary drama."
