David Turcotte began his studies in classical music in Quebec, distinguishing himself in a wide range of roles including Frank in Die Fledermaus (J. Strauss), the Cat and the Tree in L’Enfant et les Sortilèges (Ravel), Presto in Les Mamelles de Tirésias (Poulenc), Masetto in Don Giovanni (Mozart)… David Turcotte has also shone on stage as a soloist at the Opéra de Québec in Harry Somers’ production of Louis Riel, as Elzéar Goulet, and at the Opéra du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, where he played the role of Johann in Massenet’s Werther. His participation in the tour of Offenbach’s operetta La Belle Hélène for Jeunesses musicales du Canada in 2018-19 was a huge success, all the way to the Festival d’opéra de Québec.
He is a laureate of the Fondation Royaumont in France for the training course “German Baroque Polyphony: Heinrich Schütz”. He has perfected his skills at the Centre de musique baroque de Versailles, a leading centre for research, creation and production of the rich French baroque musical heritage. He has participated in several recordings, including Le Destin du nouveau siècle (Campra).
On Thursday 14 December, David Turcotte will be sharing the stage with Rodolphe Lospied, a talented pianist from Bordeaux. Trained at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Bordeaux, his studies have enabled him to acquire the speed and exacting standards inherent in the profession of accompanist. He accompanies the Masterclasses of Antoine Palloc, Olivier Freidj, Anaïk Morel and Salvatore Caputo, and works regularly with the Opéra de Lyon. A versatile musician, he plays as harpsichordist in the opera Bang! conducted by Ingrid Roose at the Philharmonie de Paris. Since 2018, he and soprano Julie Goussot have formed the duo Symbiose – awarded the Grand Prix at the Concours de Mélodie Française in Toulouse.
