Pierre Mollet (b1920)

Pierre Mollet was born in Switzerland in 1920. He trained at the Lausanne Conservatoire, where he was a pupil of Charles Panzéra. In 1946 he won second prize at the Geneva International Music Competition. The following year he began studies in musical interpretation with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, and became active as a soloist with orchestras there during the late 1940s and 1950s. From 1948 to 1962 he traveled throughout Northern Africa and France performing in concerts sponsored by the Jeunesses Musicales International. He also sang in concerts at a number of notable music festivals such as those of Strasbourg and Aix-en-Provence.

He made his professional stage début in 1952 as Pelléas (Pelléas et Mélisande) at the Opéra-Comique, and recorded the same part later that year with conductor Ernest Ansermet for Decca. He went on to sing this part throughout Europe and South America. Other significant rôles that he undertook included Albert (Werther) and Mercutio (Roméo et Juliette) (Gounod). He created the rôle of Eraste in Frank Martin’s opera Monsieur de Pourceaugnac. He became a naturalized Canadian citizen in 1974, and in 1979 married the Canadian pianist Suzanne Blondin.
