📖 Concours musical international de Montréal: Joyful energy and extraordinary talent [extracts]
By Elena Luporini, 27 June 2022 (Bachtrack)

Both based in New York, American soprano Meredith Wohlgemuth and South Korean pianist Jinhee Park have been collaborating as a duo for about a year. On stage they exhibited formidable chemistry: throughout their performance they vibrated together, Wohlgemuth’s warm tone and Park’s impassioned yet collected piano playing. The soprano’s fine musicality and sense for phrasing didn’t go unnoticed, securing her the first prize and the generous Joseph Rouleau Career Development Grant. “For me, the CMIM is not just a competition but also an occasion to pay homage to the composers whose music my pianist and I love to play,” she explained to me. “The German repertoire, as well as contemporary American music. It was a pleasure and an honour to share that with the audience.”


Certainly, fearless versatility and charisma seem to be Simone McIntosh’s trademark. As mentioned, the mezzo-soprano was awarded the first prize and met with roaring applause from the audience – and it’s not hard to understand why. Her voice promptly adapted to each piece, retaining its full, pleasant tone in both Strauss’ lyrical stirrings and Rossini’s challenging coloratura. “I love singing Mozart and Handel, but I also enjoy probing 20th- and 21st-century music,” she told me. “Schoenberg, Berg, Messiaen, as well as contemporary composers. I feel drawn to that repertoire”.
