Degout, Stéphane; Lepper, Simon

Short just as love, life, poetry, and a winter concert given at the Théâtre de l’Athénée, this new B Records album proposes a program of musical miniatures, from Fauré to Schumann and Brahms. An opportunity to hear the baritone Stéphane Degout, one of the best French melodists, and his partner Simon Lepper behind his piano, in a sometimes soft, sometimes stormy, always romantic album. French baritone Stephane Degout graduated from the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Lyon and then became a member of the Atelier Lyrique de l’Opera de Lyon. He gained international attention in his debut as Papgeno at the Festival d’Aix. Since then, he has appeared on major opera stages. He was appointed ‘Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres’ in September 2012, a prestigious award which recognizes ‘significant contribution to the enrichment of French cultural inheritance.’
