The program was primarily focused on operatic adaptations of Georg Büchner's literary works. Following that, we played Carlo Bergonzi recordings to commemorate his death exactly one year before. Next week, we will be dedicating an entire program to the great soprano Lucine Amara, whom we have interviewed for the program. Don't miss it!
