Norma not recorded yet?

Facebook fan page of Sumi Jo says that «Norma» will be recorded this September. It doesn't necessarily mean that former news wasn't true since an opera might be recorded part by part. If we look at «La Sonnambula» booklet we see the statement that the recording took place in June – July 2007 and in September 2008. Maybe «Norma» will be «divided» as well.

  1. Sergei, in our times, I think dividing recording times has much more to do with availability of artists. Adalgisa is not the main role, I'm sure, everything else is recorded already except the solo and duet parts of Adalgisa. Also retakes might be needed.
    But if the date is true, does that mean, we are not getting an album of Cecilia this year at all or only later in the year and also does it mean, there won't be a new project of hers anytime soon??? -:(.

  3. It's possible there will be no new album this autumn, since October 2011 concerts are marked as Sacrificium with iGA (as well as March 2012). But we've got three operas next season in any case.

  4. What about Vivladi? I read on this forum that there will be a dvd after the Versailles concerts...

  6. Norma had a first recording session last spring and will have a second in September.
    They are supposed to finish by the end of next session but perhaps they will need some extra time since there's still so much to do.
    No news about the release period, but it could be postponed even till 2013, perhaps just in Whitsun period...

  9. I was just refeering to this posted by Klaus:

    September 15, 2010
    Vivaldi as her next project ??????
    Everything seems to make sense: the recording session in Santander with supposedly Il Giardino Armonico, the two concerts in Versailles with Ensemble Matheus (great choice -:) ) and now the concert in Munich with the same orchestra in June 2011.

  10. Alexandre, obviously the concert hasn't been recorded in Versailles as earlier in the year mentioned on their website. In that old posting I referred to a newspaper mentioning a recording session with Il Giardino, but I think no composer was named then. So maybe we are in for a new recording with that wonderful combination of Cecilia and IGA , but a she has no schedule for a new tour and still will do some Sacrificium concerts, it seems to become more and more unlikely. All hints to an almost all-opera season, which is not bad either....Klaus

  11. Thanks Klaus for your informations.
    As far as i know Cecilia releases her new albums every odd year so, apart the Norma, we will have to wait until 2013 ? ! ?

  12. That's only true for her special projects, not for opera recordings -;).
