Notes & Reviews:

Sabine Devielhe's career and accolades to date are impressive, even before taking into account the fact that she is not yet 30 years old. Though her studies began with the cello and musicology, she changed to the voice and never looked back, graduating from the Paris Conservatoire with the First Prize. Even during her studies she began performing with the Musiciens du Louvre with Marc Minkowski, Le Concert Spirituel under Herve Niquet, and Ensemble Pymalion with Raphael Pichon, whom she would eventually marry. Her debut album released in November 2013 - Rameau: le Grand Theatre de l'Amour with Les Ambassadeurs - was a huge success, winning Diapason d'Or, the Grand Prix de l'Academie Charles Cros, as well and being named Album of the Week on BBC Radio 3. Following on from that success, this album featuring Ensemble Pymalion and Raphael Pichon in a survey of some of the arias Mozart wrote for the Weber sisters. Beautiful, charming and talented, Aloysia, Josepha, and Konstanze (who eventually became Mozart's wife) were three muses for the composer, inspiring some of his most glorious vocal works.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
The programme centres around three magnificent showpiece arias for Aloysia, famed both for her expressive cantabile and her coloratura prowess, Among her specialities were sustained pianissimo high notes; and I can't imagine they were more delicately floated than they are by Sabine Devieilhe, a lyric coloratura who combines a pure, sweet timbre and dazzling virtuosity.

The Guardian, 26th November 2015
Irresistibly good Mozart singing...Expressive and incisive, Devieilhe is in command of everything...Devieilhe's account of the famously stratospheric Die Hųlle Rache is exceptional. Even amid a recent glut of classy Mozart vocal recordings, this stands out.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
The concert-aria and operatic readings themselves are gems, each one thrown off with a splendid combination of technical brilliance, musicianly assurance and tonal sweetness, and impeccably supported by the period-instrument band.
