Portrait of 'le plus grand' of his day by a star of ours

Sopranos often steal the show, but every now and then other voices sing the high note. In Baroque France, for example, composers and audiences were very fond of the haute-contre, a high male voice that requires a technique few singers have attempted since. As heir to this tradition, Reinoud Van Mechelen focuses on this often overlooked repertoire. With his ensemble a nocte temporis, he explores the amazing music of Rameau and his contemporaries, starring legendary haute-contre Pierre Jéliote, the first to sing the part of the nymph Platée.
