Celebrating Bastille Day. Vive la France!!!

Celebrating Bastille Day
We couldn't find a good baritone version of Le Marsellaise, so we'll break all of the rules and celebrate Bastille Day with a tenor. Here is the always entertaining Roberto Alagna singing the spirited anthem of France. 

What better way to celebrate than with some French barihunks singing French music. Let's start with Gerard Souzay singing Ravel's "Don Quichotte" and Gabriel Fauré's Après un rêve:

François Le Roux
Here is François Le Roux singing Henri Duparc's "Chanson triste"  and Charles Gounod 's "Le Soir":

  1. Roberto Alagna is the best for Marseillaise anyway :)

  2. Bobby's great, but thank you for featuring Francois Le Roux as well. Not too well known in this country, but he visited SF alot in the 80's because his uncle Jean-Louis conducted the ballet and the Contemporary Music orchestra there. As his aunt Marta was my piano teacher I had a chance to meet him, and also to see him perform. Also thank you for featuring French music! SO underrated in this country where the German composers are so adulated (ho hum). Marta taught me to love french music (glad to see my fave, Plonky (Poulenc) out ahead in the polls)
