Exploring the relationship between words and music is at the heart of Marc Mauillon’s artistic approach. Along with his ability to take on both baritone and tenor repertories, and his so recognisable timbre, his sense of colour and diction serve his insatiable curiosity.
From medieval music to contemporary repertoire, from opera to recital, his career history is a reflection of an unordinary eclecticism. Meeting W.Christie for the 1st Jardin des Voix, then J.Savall, at first opened up for him a magnificent field of exploration of early music, which he later expanded.
Passionate about chamber music, he performs in particular with P.Hamon, V.Biffi, A.Mauillon, G.Coppola, A. Le Bozec, M.Rignol, M.Mankar and T.Roussel, adapting the art of singing to suit the music, the repertoires and the characters that his voice portrays.
In addition to numerous opera broadcasts, Marc Mauillon has made several recordings : three of secular music by Machaut, two collections of melodies by Poulenc and Fauré, an anthology on First World War musicians, Florentine monodies by Peri and Caccini, Leçons de Ténèbres by Lambert and a solo a cappella recital. Regularly praised by the critics, this discography enlightens his choices.
