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.

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).
