: Voices for the World: 1: Gwyneth Jones

Profiles of four leading British opera singers.

Gwyneth Jones
in which the young Welsh soprano talks about her rise to international fame, and sings excerpts from Il Trovatore, Don Carlos, Tosca, The Flying Dutchman, and Fidelio with Ronald Dowd in the duet from Fidelio and contributions by Ande Anderson, Maria Carpi, Edward Downes, Georg Solti.

with the Royal Opera House Orchestra
Leader, Charles Taylor
Conducted by Edward Downes
Gwyneth Jones, Ronald Dowd, Georg Solti, Edward Downes, Ande Anderson, and the Royal Opera House Orchestra appear by arrangement with the Gen. Administrator, Royal Opera House Covent Garden

Gwyneth Jones is a native of Pontnewydd near Pontypool, Monmouthshire. She began as a child performer at Sunday School concerts at her local chapel. She gained a Monmouthshire County Council Scholarship to the Royal College of Music and won every prize available to last-year students before going to Italy to study at Siena.
This was followed by a period at the Zurich Opera House and her first triumphs with the Welsh National Opera Company. Success followed success after that in the world's leading opera houses, including La Scala, Covent Garden, and the Vienna State.
Her voice is spectacular and generous as BBC-tv viewers who saw her performance in Aida from Covent Garden a few weeks ago will know. As Edward Downes says, she has 'a sort of enchantment, the ability to create sympathy in the hearts and eyes of her audience'.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
