Bruno Pelletier: Transforming the Soul
November 15, 2011 13:43

Bruno Pelletier

We all froze in our seats, waiting for Bruno and holding famous small flags of Quebec to greet the artist. A minute, another one, a strange stirring on the stage, blinking lights...and here he is – a romantic poet Gringoire, a sensitive teenager and an old crazy rocker rolled into one. Bruno is the master of transformation, charismatic, ambitious, dynamic, emotional and absolutely talented. 

To say that he performed brilliantly is an understatement. It was not merely a concert, but a kind of mystical conversation with the audience. He mesmerised the audience to the point when everyone began to repeat his gestures. A wave of the hand, a smile, a step, a new note were mirrored and repeated by people. The whole stage was covered with flowers, people were queuing up with bouquets after each song. One of the girls, falling in love with Bruno, shyly presented him the picture of herself, the second pretty fan handed him a bright yellow Cheburashka. Pelletier replied to all with a sincere smile and a new exciting song.

I will never forget that unique energy that I sensed in those few hours. The synergy of Bruno and the audience reached the point when we sang all together to his tunes, and it seemed like we were one amazing, genuine choir.

Undoubtedly, he penetrated into our hearts. He amazed us with his strong voice, insane guitar playing, and funny attempts to speak Russian. We cried, when he was singing a song, dedicated to his father. We felt compassion, when he was performing “La Manic”, important for all Quebecois. We dreamed while he was remembering magnificent Notre Dame.

But what touched me most of all was his attitude to his spectators who was sitting in front of him at that moment. And though I understand that Bruno always says a lot of warm words to the audience of every country, I still have a little hope - he loves his Russian fans a bit more than others.
