French Baroque Music has his own and very specific language. Ornamentation, articulation, accent,
declamation are the main keys to touch the spirit of this music. It invites singers to express the characters of passion, love, hate, hope, treason… both in opera and in sacred music. My experience of international singer allows me to propose an exploration of vocal technique and interpretation to the singers who will come in my workshop. Students will be able to sing French operas arias, cantates, and sacred pieces, with the possibility of a work on French Latin pronunciation. Music, texts and translations will have to be perfectly known, so that we can work together for the best possible performance of this magnificent music.
