Michèle Bréant & Gabriel Durliat

Soprano Michèle Bréant and pianist Gabriel Durliat met in 2023 at the Philippe Jaroussky Music Academy, where they were members of the Debussy promotion. Very quickly their musical and artistic understanding was born, for they both share a great love and taste for French music and the intimate repertoire of the lied.

They were the finalists of the 12th Nadia and Lili Boulanger Competition which took place in Paris in October 2023 and will participate in the residency dedicated to chamber music as part of the Royaumont Foundation next July, and supervised by Stéphane Degout and Cédric Tiberghien . Next year they will give several recitals mixing melody and lied, notably at the Maisonnettes, former home of the Boulanger sisters.


Born in 1999, Michèle Bréant  ‘s recent appearances include Euridice in Sartorio’s Orfeo conducted by Philippe Jaroussky and directed by Benjamin Lazare, Titania in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Taumännchen in Humperdinck’s Hänsel and Gretel at the Leipzig Opera, Bach’s St Matthew Passion at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with La Petite Bande conducted by Sigiswald Kuijken.

This year, she will also sing Susanna /Le Nozze di Figaro at La Seine Musicale, Zerlina / Don Giovanni with ARCAL in a new production by Jean-Yves Ruf and conductor Julien Chauvin with Le Concert de la Loge. Other upcoming important house debuts include Opéra de Lorraine, Grand théâtre du Luxembourg and Théâtre de Caen… More about Michèle, click here…
