The programme of the Mission concerts !!

As usual the Barbican is one of the first to publish the programme of the concert.
Bozar.be too (same programme of course) and more concert halls.

14 arias with track 7 of the CD as the final aria of the evening ,to my big delight. .
And 6 ouvertures/instrumental pieces ("aires pour les nymphs de la riviére" (not written on the original score) is not an aria but the first of 3 ballets at the end of Scene 6 of La Lotta d'Ercole con Acheloo. Interestingly Händel used it for his oratorio Theodora and possibly Alceste. If it had been an aria it would have been in Italian).

It means the following tracks of the CD are in the programme:

1, 3 , 4, 5, 7,  8,  9,  10,  11,  13,  15, 16, 19, 24

This is a total of singing of 50 minutes, 25 seconds (plus instrumental and encores).

It's too important to be in a commentary, so I double it here, thanks, Dominique.

  2. Also Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels published the programme, of course the same.

  3. 'Aires pour les nymphes de la rivière' from La lotta d’Hercole con Acheloo (1689)

    very interesting -:).

  4. More interesting, Fasolis plays the harpsichord and will be the leader of the KOB !

  5. Didymus, "Aires pour les nymphes" is interesting, yes (but not an aria).It was probably used by Handel in his oratorio Theodora which features..... Didimus !
    I have Theodora on CDs and will listen closely in Cecilia's concert to hear any similarity.Possibly in the chorus "For ever thus stands fixed the doom" or "Queen of summer, queen of love".

  6. Very very nice! I do miss
    Svenati struggiti, combatti
    La ceraste piu terribile
    Tra le guerre e le vittorie
    And some of the duets, but I understand the duets are left out. I am very happy my three favorites will be performed. Piu non v'ascondo, Si si, riposa o caro and Mie fide schiere. I didn't expect Cecilia to sing Mie fide Schiere live. It sounds like it must be very difficult with al those hight staccato notes and coloratura passages. But of course Cecilia isn't afraid of that. I can't wait!

    1. Sevenati struggiti combatti could well be an encore. She often ends the concert with a highly virtuoso aria. In 3 days (Munich) we will know (if anybody writes about it here)!
      As far as I know it is the first time she includes the first aria of a CD in a concert.

    2. Ton, you've forgotten about «Come nave».

    3. Sergei, you are right: Cecilia also started her Saacrificium concerts with the first aria on her CD, a nice new habit.

  7. It's nice to follow you all in your writing about Cecilias concerts, wish I were so lucky as you who seams to be going see her. I think that Cecilias new CD is one of her best, this pre baroque music as she herself calls it is wonderful.
