Jean Nirouët was born in Paris and had early studies in flute, bassoon and piano at the Strasbourg Conservatoire, developing a great interest in singing at the age of sixteen. He had lessons first with Germaine Lubin, and then with Jacqueline Bonnardot in Orleans, and with Christiane Eda-Pierre at the Paris Conservatoire, where he obtained the first top marks ever awarded to a counter tenor. In 1981 he also won first prize in the ‘s Hertogenbosch International Singing Competition. His career has brought operatic appearances throughout Europe, as well as concert performances with leading ensembles and conductors. His repertoire includes medieval and baroque music as well as French and German art songs and much contemporary music. His recordings include operas and cantatas of Handel and Vivaldi, Masses of Dufay, De La Rue, Gilles, Charpentier, Caldara, Giroust, and contemporary music. He is very active as a teacher of singing, with a particular interest in bel canto techniques of the nineteenth century.
