CONCERT

Together, let’s imagine the future of classical music!

By delving anew into the archives, a legendary recording has been rediscovered: that of soprano Gwyneth Jones’ visit to Église Saint-Jacques de Montcalm on August 23, 1988. Gifted with an exceptional Wagnerian voice, her extraordinary dramatic instinct enabled her to rise to the highest
firmament of Italian opera.
