Notes & Reviews:

After initially making her name in Baroque music performance working with such conductors as William Christie and Rene Jacobs, Sandrine Piau today possesses a broad repertoire mirrored by her substantial discography, and has confirmed her key position in the new generation of French singers. Her new CD, entitled "Evocation", is a selection of poetic melodies on the theme of women, and includes several songs from the late romantic period. The composers represented here were all active during the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th century.

Gramophone Magazine - James Inverne
As the cover art might suggest, Sandrine Piau's new album is dedicated to exploring the different sides of womanhood. I'm not sure I can claim to know how close she gets, but this programme - which includes songs by composers as disparate as Debussy, Richard Strauss and Zemlinsky - contains some of the most exquisite singing I have heard from this wonderful soprano... This is a blessedly unhackneyed programme, performed from start to finish with exceptional finesse

BBC Music Magazine
Piau's radiant tone, renowned clarity of diction and range of sensuous emotion make this a heavenly experience.
