Revue de presse / Reviews

La couleur de l’intervention de Michel Bettez était mémorable, étreignante. Elle contenait toute la souffrance du monde. Elle était Tchaïkovski.
Christophe Huss, Le Devoir (3 mars 2018)

Bettez est au Métropolitain … : le petit ingrédient magique.
Christophe Huss, Le Devoir (14 mai 2016)

Bettez, principal bassoonist of Montreal’s Metropolitan Orchestra, plays very expressively, with a sonorous, singing sound and excellent musical instincts.
Pfeil, American Record Guide [March/April 2018]

[Bettez], never less than vital and clearly up to all the technical challenges, is more inclined to savor the lyric qualities of the works he plays. His instrument is marvelous: warm of tone, stable in the large leaps… Tuning seems impeccable … Ronald E. Grames, Fanfare [January/February 2018]

Bettez and Amièle give what must be ideal performances. He plays beautifully in tune and with a wistful Gallic sweetness, she with full-blooded richness and poetry.
Laurence Vittes, Gramophone [December 2017]

Bettez’s playing is so alluring — warm and mellow in coloration, and marked by fine-spun expressivity.
Joshua Kosman, SFGATE [September 2017]
