Reviews & Press

Rosendal Chamber Music Festival - Alexander Vustin - Zaitsev's letter - Narrator

De las diversas obras de Aleksandr Vustin programadas, causó especial impresión la originalidad de La carta de Zaitsev, una carta real de un preso en la que denunciaba las condiciones inhumanas del sistema carcelario ruso. Leída y cantada frenéticamente por un tenor (magnífico Christophe Poncet de Solages), Vustin teje a su alrededor un denso acompañamiento instrumental para cuerda y percusión que avanza también sin resuello hasta la última nota

- Luis Gago , El Pais

This performance was gifted by the recitation of the French tenor Christophe Poncet de Solages. Poncet de Solages did not sing per se and remarkably learnt Russian at high school, but the visceral rhythmic vitality of his interpretation through Sprechstimme and half sung phrases shot through the air with a searing direction aimed straight to our hearts. Poncet de Solanges’s interpretation was a stratigraphic excavation of the thoughts of the distressed prisoner. Theatrical music making of this standard does not get more compelling. Like Bondarenko, Poncet de Solages took us to the place Pärt so aptly seeks – a heart to heart connection that takes us a little above the ground. In this case, the earth rattled.

- José Pons , Olyrix

Les deux Ajax sont interprétés par Christophe Poncet de Solages et Virgile Frannais, le plus grand aux allures romaines écrasant le plus petit aux allures napoléonienne, y compris vocalement.
