With the album Amour fou, soprano Myriam Leblanc and Ensemble Mirabilia take us on a journey of love via arias and songs spanning more than 800 years. From Fauré’s poetic Au bord de l’eau to Jacques Brel’s heartrending Ne me quitte pas and Barbara’s Dis quand reviendras-tu?, Leblanc has gathered a bouquet of music depicting the most human of all sentiments. Amour fou also includes an aria from Vivaldi’s cantata Amor hai vento, several old English songs by Thomas Campion, along with other vocal and instrumental treasures.

With her “resplendent vocal purity” (Le Devoir), Leblanc conveys a range of emotions that often accompany love, including turmoil, despair, and sweet sorrow. She evokes sensual love in songs whose eroticism is barely veiled by metaphors, as well as serene, contemplative love.
