" (...) The elaborate, yet smooth playing by each of these accomplished musicians has the unmistakable sound of non-mechanical mastery. The pauses, the sliding fingers on the frets, the improvisations are all reassuringly comforting. There is a near hypnotic effect to listening to this gentle collection...
“FORTIN-LÉVEILLÉ-DONATO-NASTURICA "Le quatuor montréalais revient avec son charme tranquille et ses textures brésiliennes, manouches, tsiganes et jazzistiques (...) l'évidente complicité entre les musiciens, la profondeur harmonique, la façon de faire fondre les genres, la tendresse discrète et la beauté des mélodies, mélancoliques ou lumineuses. (...) Baie des anges est un beau disque à la douceur contagieuse"”
“Luc Fortin and Richard Leveille, Soleil. The second album from this Canadian guitar duo distills Spanish and South American influences into a delightful listening experience. Fortin and Leveille play together seamlessly but write quite differently. "Bonne Fête" and "Soleil" by Leveille have a distinctly Brazilian flavor, and his lovely "Reveur" is one of the most beautiful guitar melodies on record. Fortin's compositions, such as "Equinox" and the Gypsy-inspired "Pinson Roumain," are more atmospheric; his solo "Poudrerie" is a poignant, melancholy waltz; and "Valse de Montreal" recalls French accordion music. A thoroughly enjoyable outing.”
