La Damnation de Faust – Tanglewood – August 2007

Marcello Giordani, singing the role of Faust, embraced separated phrases, connecting musical ideas over long stretches that many tenors leave disconnected…. This kind of vocal fluency established his presence throughout the evening. During the opening of “Ange Adoré,” his love duet with Marguerite, he sang seamlessly between vocal registers, then lifted to a clear high C-sharp (above high A), without falsetto, in the next phrase.
