Notes and Editorial Reviews

Joseph Rouleau, Hommage

Acclaimed on the world's greatest opera stages, he sang alongside the likes of Joan Sutherland, Victoria de Los Angeles, Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, Cesare Siepi, Placido Domingo, and his compatriots Jon Vickers and Richard Verreau. He was equally at ease with Rossini, Verdi, Bellini, Mussorgsky, and Félix Leclerc. Conscious of the need to promote modern repertoire, he took part in the premiere of Harry Somers’ opera Louis Riel, and he commissioned Jacques Hétu’s Le Prix and Clément Pépin’s Messe sur le monde. He conveyed his passion to a new generation of singers for nearly 20 years at the Université de Québec à Montréal, while taking on the
Read more presidency of Jeunesses Musicales du Canada, a position he has held since 1989 and that paved the way for his co-founding, along with André Bourbeau, of the Montréal International Music Competition. Whatever he does, and wherever he goes, whether singing or sharing the memories of an enviable career, Joseph Rouleau is filled with a contagious fervour. Drawing from this Matane native's impressive discography, Analekta presents here not a description of his legacy but rather a portrayal of his vigour and vitality.
