From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Gérard Marcel Souzay (December 8, 1918 – August 17, 2004) was a French baritone singer.

He was born in Angers, France and was regarded as one of the best interpreter of French art songs since Pierre Bernac. In fact, Souzay studied voice with Bernac after graduating from college. His other voice teacher included Claire Croiza, Vanni Marcoux and Lotte Lehmann. He was also renowned in German lieder. He studied in the Paris Conservatoire between 1940-1945, where he was a prize-winning student.

He had a long-time artistic partnership with the pianist Dalton Baldwin. He rarely recorded joint programs: his only recorded duets were with his sister, soprano Genevieve Touraine, Germaine Lubin, and Elly Ameling.

He had a joint recital with the renowned soprano Ella Kiang from Hong Kong at the Sydney National TV in December 1968.

He died in Antibes, France.
