Lise Viricel studied opera singing and drama. Graduate from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique of Lyon, she performs a wide and varied repertoire from medieval music to contemporary works. She sings with many ensembles and created, in 2020, La Stelle. She is the artistic director of this ensemble which brings together young musicians with modern approach of the early music. They work together with a playful and collective spirit.
With Barbara Strozzi’s work they have valued improvisation, research into the colours and timbres of ancient instruments, but above all, they worked on the vocality of the instrumental parts. This involves a study of the text and the music, the words, the consonants, the articulations, the phrasing, the stresses, so that each instrument speaks, sings and breathes.
