Lévinas, conducted by Arie van Beek and staged by Lilo Baur – in which he sang L’Aviateur – first in Lausanne, then in Lille, at the Grand Théâtre of Geneva and finally at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. Gentilhomme staged by Denis Podalydès. In the concert hall, under Michel Corboz’s impetus, Vincent’s renderings of the Evangelist in Bach’s Passions have acquired an international prominence; he also frequently performs pieces from the French Baroque repertoire – ideally suited to his effortless high notes and his understanding of the proper style required for the “French haute-contre” parts – and oratorios by Mozart, Haydn, Berlioz, Dvorak, Rachmaninov, Orff and Britten. .Several recordings of his are about to be published. They will complement a discography that can already boast 30 releases, of which several have been awarded prestigious distinctions (Diapason d’Or, Choc of Le Monde de la Musique, Prix Massenet for the best complete recording of a French opera, CD of the month of the Goldberg Magazine…).
