César Vezzani 1912-1925
César Vezzani was a true tenor-fort, equivalent of the Italian lyrico-spinto, and therefore assigned the demi-caractère rôles which demand a wide vocal range. In addition Vezzani’s brilliant top notes place him firmly in a line of French dramatic tenors who can claim their heritage from Gilbert-Louis Duprez (1806-1896)...
|Review||"Vezzani had truly one of the finest heroic voices among the French tenors. His interpretation of Jean de Leyden (Roi du Ciel) is excellent. His voice was very strong, with a huge rage, but he could soften his voice (see his first aria from Manon). This is a superb recording, practically no of the contemporary tenors can compare with Vezzani. He never shouted, there's no cry like Villazon or Licitra." - Anonymous|
