Canada’s top 20 classical albums of 2020

For her debut solo album on ATMA Classique, our long time colleague soprano Hélène Brunet has chosen Baroque and Classical arias for which she feels a deep affinity. Under the direction of Eric Milnes, L’Harmonie des saisons collaborates with her in a program of music by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, and two arias (recorded here for the first time) of Leonardo Vinci.

Recognized for its “song of perfect beauty and stage presence of more radiant,” the soprano Hélène Brunet sings Bach, Handel, Mozart, and the directory of XXth and XXIth centuries with equal pleasure.

In concert, she performs at the Tage Alter Musik Regensburg, with the American Bach Soloists orchestra in San Francisco, at the prestigious Lincoln Center in New York with the American Classical Orchestra, with the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, then with several ensembles and symphony orchestras in North America.

The critics are unanimous :

Hélène Brunet’s talent is undeniable. Her light soprano voice is even throughout the register, supple and with great ease in vocalizations. The singer also demonstrates, throughout, a remarkable musical and dramatic intelligence, living in every word, every phrase. […] We have here a first-rate vocal production highlighting a new Quebec talent. Emmanuel Bernier, La Presse, November 2020

Recorded in February, 2020, this disk was produced with a very detailed and precise soundtrack. For those of you who like a more airy sonority, this style of caption will provide you with a full opportunity to appreciate the explementary work and tonal quality of oboist Matthew Jennejohn or flutist Grégoire Jeay. Emmanuel Bernier, La Presse, November 2020

Hélène Brunet is proving to possess a voice that matters in the Quebec and Canadian landscape of quality baroque singing. […] L’Harmonie des saisons brings touches of well-balanced colors that are elegantly revealed by their excellent ensemble playing. – Frédéric Cardin, Pan 360, November 2020

Hélène Brunet has a very warm soprano voice. The well-mastered technical challenges nestle in the vocalizations of Vivaldi arias. The best of the recording is to be found in the airs in which Hélène Brunet’s voice unfolds calmly without pressure or constraints. – Christophe Huss, Le Devoir, November 2020
