Alain Vanzo (tenor)

Alain Vanzo was born in Monaco in April 1928 and was apparently a gifted musician from an early age. From an inauspicious start, he was eventually heard by a singing teacher who recognised his talents, and from that point on, he was lucky enough to be integrated into the French music scene where he triumphed in various performances.

He made his debut at the Pera and the Opera-Comique in 1957, going on to sing the Duke of Mantua that same year.

He became known and respected as a lyric tenor and matured towards a more robust tenor, culminating in him taking on Werther at aged 40 and Don Jose at aged 45. By the time he reached the age of 48, and after his performance of Faust in 1976 in the US, he had become a star and this disc shows exactly why he was so well respected.

“What comes across is a singer with impeccable voice production, excellent diction, a pleasantly robust timbre – and, judging by the 1982 French-language interview included here, a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude to his art.” Financial Times, 8th June 2013 *****

“some of the most sheerly elegant and engaging tenor singing on record...everything he sings is worth hearing for the intrinsic charm and beauty of his very Gallic lyric tenor.” MusicWeb International, 25th July 2013
