Airs Baroques Français

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
In the old days, an opera star made her name singing Violetta, Norma, or Carmen. Today, the opportunities for stardom are more varied, for the simple reason that both singers and audiences are interested in a wider repertory. Take Patricia Petibon, who has portrayed Olympia Les Contes d'Hoffmann, Norina Don Pasquale, Sophie Werther, and Zerbinetta Ariadne auf Naxos -- roles that, with the possible exception of the last, rarely lead to celebrity. Here, however, in a program of French Baroque airs, the soprano may have found her niche. The voice is pure, agile, and elegant -- ideally suited to the music. She is delightful in the mad song from Rameau's Plat?e, ...

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
In the old days, an opera star made her name singing Violetta, Norma, or Carmen. Today, the opportunities for stardom are more varied, for the simple reason that both singers and audiences are interested in a wider repertory. Take Patricia Petibon, who has portrayed Olympia Les Contes d'Hoffmann, Norina Don Pasquale, Sophie Werther, and Zerbinetta Ariadne auf Naxos -- roles that, with the possible exception of the last, rarely lead to celebrity. Here, however, in a program of French Baroque airs, the soprano may have found her niche. The voice is pure, agile, and elegant -- ideally suited to the music. She is delightful in the mad song from Rameau's Platée, exquisitely tender in the scene from Charpentier's David et Jonathas, and brings expressive majesty and surprising intensity to the larger-scale emotions of Lully's Armide. The accompanying ensemble, Les Folies Françoise, is another discovery here. Under their music director Patrick Cohën-Akenine, they are comparable with Les Talens Lyriques, Les Arts Florissants, and other French period instrument ensembles. Merveilleux!
Gramophone - Michael Oliver
[Petibon's] voice is pretty, agile and beguiling, just as it should be, but when it comes to real drama she hits the spot no less unerringly.... In the end...it is Petibon's imaginative approach to text and characterisation that makes this unusual disc a triumph.
