Ludovic Tézier & Cassandre Berthon
Baritone Ludovic Tézier is a particularly big name amongst our visiting soloists, and we’re delighted that, along with Tosca, he will perform in a concert of his own too. The other soloist of the concert will be the dazzling French soprano Cassandra Berthon. She and Tézier not only perform together but are also a couple.
The first half of the concert comprises enchanting French songs from the lied repertoire of Gabriel Fauré, Francis Poulenc, and more. After the interval, it’s time for duets and arias from Mozart’s, Bellini’s and Verdi’s operas – an experience to cherish, as Ludovic Tézier is considered the world’s best interpreter of Verdi’s music.
Perhaps the secret behind Tézier’s reputation is, besides his profound skills, in his attitude: “I love Mozart, I love Verdi, but I love my job for sharing this love I have, of those masterpieces, with people. It is important to show the public that it’s much more than music, it’s one of the most fantastic accomplishments in human history.” Together with tenor Jonas Kaufmann, Ludovic Tézier has appealed to EU decision makers and European governments to save culture and the performing arts from the effects of the pandemic.
