Delicious melancholy The circulation of artists and sovereigns between France and England in the seventeenth century resulted in the establishment of highly original genres in the latter country: the first recitatives, large-scale airs from masques and dramatic ‘scenes' provided fertile ground for experimentation and prepared the way for the birth of semi-opera. Sébastien Daucé explores this English vocal art in a programme tailor-made for one of today's most fascinating voices: Lucile Richardot, in the exquisite setting provided by Correspondances, subtly blends music, love, night and melancholy. Délicieuse mélancolie La circulation des artistes comme des souverains entre la France et l'Angleterre au XVIIe siècle a permis d'affirmer outre-Manche des genres extrêmement originaux : premiers récitatifs, grands airs de Mask, "scènes" dramatiques constituent un riche terrain d'expérimentations préparant la naissance du semi-opéra… Sébastien Daucé propose d'explorer cet art vocal anglais en offrant un programme taillé sur mesure à l'une des voix les plus fascinantes d'aujourd'hui : Lucile Richardot, au cœur de l'écrin de l'ensemble Correspondances, lie avec subtilité musique, amour, nuit et mélancolie.
