Concert
The soprano Judith van Wanroij is joined by the Quatuor Cambini-Paris in a selection of arias by Gluck, Spontini, Méhul, Fontenelle, Lemoyne and Cherubini. Led by the poetic and incisive bow of Julien Chauvin, the instrumentalists will punctuate this recital with forgotten gems from the First Empire era.
