Cyrille Dubois - So Romantique ! - Pizzicato
Vocal brilliance, completely oriented to the ideal of beauty in French opera singing, is also not lacking, for example in Ah, mes amis from La Fille du Régiment. Certainly Dubois’ powerful, smoothly attacked, light and unstressed high notes are inspiring, but we admire just as much his art of ornamentation, his fine phrasing, which brings an irresistible magic to the singing, and his spontaneous way of giving this aria dramaturgical meaning beyond virtuosity. In all this, Dubois is superbly supported by Orchestre National de Lille under Pierre Dumoussaud.
