Reviews & Press


Zygmunt Krauze - Polieukt - Polyeucte

Le chanteur le plus extraordinaire est le rôle éponyme. En Polyeucte, Jan Jakub Monowid est tout simplement sidérant. Sa voix de contre-ténor est corsée et puissante. La projection est si favorable que de côté ou de dos, la voix semble inépuisable. Le souffle est long et une telle homogénéité sur toute la tessiture est une qualité rarissime.
