Critiques ★ Reviews
The performances from soprano Jacqueline Woodley, mezzo-soprano Annina Haug and baritone Pierre Rancourt with pianist Marc Bourdeau and a cameo from flautist Michel Bellavance are excellent. The singing and playing is all idiomatic and appropriately adapted to the different styles of the material—French diction is top notch.
American Record Guide
By turns playful, melancholy, strutting, boisterous, wistful, and romantic, they [the songs] are sung and played with verve and elegance by all performers. (…) This is a winning album for our troubled times and an important one, as it has several world premieres.
This disc (…) reveals him [Daunais] as an inspired adept in the field of French language songs (…) and does so in a very agreeable way. (…) All in all, this is a moving and entertaining sequence – the product of careful choice, sequencing and stylish singing.
The Whole Note
Impeccable research and care of Daunais’ musical intentions (…) allow for an authentic (re)discovery of this formidable artist. (…) Mélodies is not only a significant addition to the life, times and music of Lionel Daunais, it is also an important contribution to Quebec’s musical heritage.
