Biography

The baritone Vincent Ranallo leads a career that is principally directed towards concerts and new works.

Recognized for the beauty and expressiveness of his voice, and the contagious appeal of his performances, he has performed with an increasing number of ensembles and in multiple festivals such as Ear Heart Music (New York), Athelas New Music Festival (Copenhague), New music Concerts (Toronto), Ottawa Chamberfest, le Centre d’Arts d’Orford, Aventa (Victoria BC), l’Orchestre de chambre McGill, I Musici, l’Orchestre Métropolitain, l’Ensemble contemporain de Montréal, les enfants terribles, la SMCQ, l’ensemble KORÈ, Chants Libres, Codes d’accès, Métropolis bleu, Musimars, Montréal Baroque, le Quatuor Bozzini, Paramirabo. His recent performances of Kassandra by Iannis Xenakis, of O Mensch by Pascal Dusapin and Rire physiologique by Geoarges Aperghis, in Canadian and North-American premieres, where enthusiastically embraced by critics and audiences alike. A number of Quebecois and European composers have been inspired by his voice and his creative career has taken flight. Vincent Ranallo recently participated in the first recordings of the sacred works by the Quebecois composer Auguste Descarries produced with Espace XXI and a monograph of the music of Martin Lachance.

This season, he will sing three major pieces of the contemporary repertoire: Quaderno di strada by Salvatore Sciarrino (Nouvel Ensemble Moderne), The Ghosts of Alhambra by George Crumb (Bradyworks) and Eight songs for a mad king by Peter Maxwell Davies (Paramirabo and Aradia).
