‘Lucile Richardot & Jean-Luc Ho - Baroque Magicians’

19 May'22

Whether we call them magicians, witches or, more charmingly, enchantresses, whether they are beautiful or ugly, young or old, implacably cruel or kind, they have never ceased to inspire the most beautiful verses and stanzas, given that they are ambiguous and mysterious... True muses of baroque composers, their legends have inspired many operas, drawing vivid musical colours into a heady mix of ecstasy and rapture. The haunting and generous voice of mezzo-soprano Lucile Richardot is accompanied by Jean-Luc Ho, a leading talent among a rising generation of French harpsichordists.
