Support the project Jéliote, Rameau's favourite singer 

From 23 to 28 September 2020, a nocte temporis recorded the programme Jéliote, Rameau's favourite singer, at AMUZ (Antwerp). This is the second part of the ensemble's trilogy around the haute-contre voice, made in collaboration with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV), Alpha Classics and AMUZ. With this trilogy we want to highlight the voice type of the haute-contre (the French high tenor from the 17th and 18th century) and the beautiful repertoire that was written for it. 

Pierre de Jéliote was the greatest haute-contre singer of all time and was the star in Rameau's operas. We portray him with a range of arias from well-known and lesser-known operas of Rameau, and his contemporaries. At the launch of the CD of this recording in the autumn of 2021, a nocte temporis will, in addition to concerts in various prestigious halls at home and abroad, also present performances for schoolchildren, with an interactive lesson folder for preparation or debriefing.

To make the Jéliote, Rameau's favourite singer project possible, we opened a cultural sponsorship account managed by the King Baudouin Foundation. The King Baudouin Foundation is contributing to the project. Donations from € 40 per year made to the Foundation benefit from a tax reduction of 45% of the amount actually paid (art.145/33 CIR).
In order to support non-profit organisations affected by the corona crisis, the Belgian government has even increased this tax reduction to 60% until the end of 2020 (which means that a contribution of e.g. € 100 only costs € 40 after tax reduction).

Would you like to help us make a success of Jéliote, Rameau's favourite singer? Deposit your donation to account IBAN BE10 0000 0000 0404 (BIC: BPOTBEB1) of the King Baudouin Foundation with structured notice 129/0043/00036.
