 For fans only June 21, 2013 By Dean Frey See All My Reviews "Quebec lyric tenor Marc Hervieux has a strong, strong voice, and I admired his musicianship on two opera recital discs he's recorded for ATMA. The repertoire in this new disc "Mes plaisirs" isn't to my taste, but the voice is certainly still there, and is enthusiastically applauded by the audience at the Grand Theatre de Quebec. There's not a lot of variety in the arrangements of these "favourite" songs, by Simon Leclerc, and Hervieux is singing full-bore for much of the time. Beautiful tone, plenty of volume, holding power: Hervieux has those in abundance. But he doesn't have a chance to show his full range; of colour, of drama, of simple volume. This "cross-over" disc is for fans, or those who don't want too much taste or nuance to get in the way of dramatic cresendos and crashing climaxes." Report Abuse
