    1. I really hope so! Piu non v'ascondo sounds like a great aria to celebrate this award :) But anything will do.

  4. Another award: 'Norma' won the 'Vierteljahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik' in the category Opera. Here they say (scroll a little down) that Cecilia takes away one of the splendid Belcanto key roles from the 20th and 21rst century divas. The relationship of voices and orchestra is rebalanced by the choice of historical instruments. So she succeeds in a revaluation of Vincenzo Bellini, who previously was considered to be orchestrally pale and was misunderstood as a diva vehicle. One of the most assertive and dynamic (how to translate 'impulsfreudig'??) complete opera recordings for years.

    1. I wasn't sure if one can translate word by word, but if you say so, Dr.B, I'm happy with it. My English speaking time is quite long time ago, I should refresh it more often.
