After ten years of a rich and eclectic musical life as a violist with various prestigious orchestras, Dorothée Leclair decides to focus on her singing career. She joined the Department of Baroque Music at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris in the class of Howard Crook and Kenneth Weiss, and continued her professional development at the center for vocal studies at the Royaumont Foundation (internships with Gerard Lesne), and with such figures as Malcolm King and Guillemette Laurens. During her vocal studies, she performed the roles of Belinda (Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas at the Théâtre des Variétés, Monte Carlo), and Sangaride (Lully’s Athys in Paris under the direction of Howard Crook).

She regularly sings as a soloist with the Capriccio Stravagante (Skip Sempé), with whom she recorded the Pellegrina interludes in Brussels in May 2007 (Paradizo label). She also appears with the Simphonie du Marais (Hugo Reyne, recording Lully’s ballet Les Arts in spring 2008), and Les Demoiselles de Saint-Cyr (Emmanuel Mandrin), with whom she recorded Couperin’s Leçons de Ténèbres (Ambronay label, ‘Diapason d’Or’ award). Dorothée Leclair collaborated with the Opera Comique in Paris as an understudy for the Korean soprano Sumi Jo in Auber’s Fra Diavolo (January 2009). She also performed during the 2009/2010 season at the Opera de Lille led by Emmanuelle Haim (Rameau’s Dardanus). She played the role of the Queen of the night, as well as the First Lady in Mozart’s Magic Flute at the Festival of Saint-Céré and on tour throughout France. Other notable appearances include performances in Toulouse singing Haendel’s Messiah conducted by Joel Suhubiette (The Elements ensemble), at the Ambronay Festival with the Orchestre de Pau for Fauré’s Requiem, and in residence at the Paradyz festival (Poland) with the Parlement de Musique ensemble, led by Martin Gester, where she sang a programme of French and Italian cantatas. More recently she has sung at the Cité de la Musique in Paris (J-P Rameau’s opera Naïs, directed by Hugo Reyne), and at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées for the tenth anniversary of the Concert d’Astrée ensemble, founded and conducted by Emmanuelle Haïm.

At the end of 2011 Dorothée Leclair released a CD of cantatas by Montéclair and Clérambault, recorded with Le Parlement de Musique and led by Martin Gester (K617 label, “5 Diapasons” award).

      Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

      It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance.

      I must say that you've done a awesome job with this. In addition,
      the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
      Superb Blog!

      Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
      I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to
      give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
