AGENDA

La Provence - 20 août 2018   Concert magique au château

Dernièrement, le trio Syrinx composé d’Amy Blake (soprano), Paula Thomas (flûte traversière), Georges-Henri Ducreux (piano) a donné un concert au château. Un concert original qui sortait des sentiers battus avec un répertoire composé en majorité de mélodies françaises. La diction impeccable du texte de Gabriel Mourey sur le dieu Pan lu par Amy Blake, tandis que résonnait l’air de flûte de Syrinx fut un des moments forts de cette soirée.

Hailed for her “beautiful singing” and “tremendous power and stage presence” by The New York Times, Amy Christianna Blake combines a rich expressive soprano voice with dynamic interpretation. Her exciting and moving performances of a diverse operatic and concert repertoire have firmly established her as one of today's most promising artists. For her artistry as a recitalist, she has received high acclaim. “Ms. Blake sang with such inner conviction, eloquence, passion and elegance that she brought the house down.” (New Music Connoisseur).

Amy will return to Festival Celebrate Voice in Salibury, England to sing la Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro next October.    Recently, she sang Donna Anna in Don Giovanni for Celebrate Voice under the musical direction of Phillip Thomas, Violetta in La Traviata at the National Opera of Varna, Bulgaria (conductor Stefano Seghadoni). She was La Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro for Opus Opéra (conductor Nicolas Krüger), Musetta in La Bohème and the First Lady in Die Zauberflőte for Opera Panamà. She sang Elena in Paride ed Elena by Gluck for the Caramoor Opera Festival, (conductor Will Crutchfield), Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte for Natchez Opera Festival. She was chosen to create Juana la Loca III for the the world premiere of Rage d'Amour for Tanglewood Music Center (conductor Stefan Asbury).
