Mathias Vidal Sings Rameau: L'Impatience

Mathias Vidal is a tenor to keep an eye (and an ear) on!  He appeared in L'Incoronazione di Poppea with Philippe Jaroussky. (Remember their marvelous duet?

Interestingly, he made this Rameau recording in the U.S., but beyond performances in Dallas and Houston in conjunction with the recording, he seems to have stayed east of the Atlantic. According to his website he has been performing regularly in Europe.

Vidal has a lovely light French tenor sound that might be characterized as a haute-contre. He has already appeared on several DVDs including Poppea and Cavalli’s La Didone, and on the Rameau CD that contains this cantata. Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear him in the French (tenor) version of Gluck’s Orfeo?
