The countertenor and dancer Théophile Alexandre is one of the few artists in the world intermixing song and dance at this level of excellence. He is known and recognised by great conductors for his voice, which is warm, vibrant and unique, covering more than 2 octaves and able to soar with virtuosity right up to the A preceding top C.

Guillaume Vincent, concert pianist, winner of numerous prizes and nominated in 2014 for the Révélation Soliste Instrumental at the Victoires de la Musique Classique, has performed solo on the most prestigious stages and has worked with many important partners.

To present the incredible, to the trained ear as well as the wider audience, these two exceptional young artists have dared to reinvent baroqe masterpieces for piano and piano-voice. The expertise of these two artists brings to life 21 amazing pearls, from the most well-known to the most rare: listening to them, we can understand why it is said that pearls are the “Tears of the Gods”. A moment of pure pleasure!
