Accademia Bizantina - Ottavio Dantone - Delphine Galou

The sacred baroque repertoire seen through the prism of opera: such is the challenge set by Delphine Galou, in the company of l’Accademia Bizantina, in unveiling a world of spirituality kneaded by sentiment and emotion.

Vivaldi, Jommelli, Gregori, but also Stradella and Caldara are at the centre of this programme, which rediscovers whole sections of sacred Italian music during the baroque period. It is the perfect occasion to embrace the permeability of aesthetics, the intense dialogue between the universe of motets, cantatas and oratorios and the world of the lyric stage in all its grandeur. Delphine Galou, appreciated for her warm alto timbre, invites us  into the very heart of the most contrasted affects of the sacred sphere: terror, restraint,  lamentation, excited exaltation, contemplative calm, fervour, it is an entire gallery of varied emotions to which we are invited in this daring recital.
