Agitata 2015?

Thanks to Thomas who was curious enough to check and find out that the Stockholm programme had changed a bit: the Vivaldi part of the concert now includes «Gelosia», «Sol da te», «Agitata da due venti», «Gelido in ogni vena» and «Sventurata navicella». That's so unexpected.

  1. My all time favourite "Agitata da due venti" - lucky people in Stockholm!! Greetings to all of you, Koile

  2. I would have loved to hear that! Hearing the notes floating down her throat, down her whole body.

    1. ... and "Gelido in ogni vena"... - for me only for the second time live - after so many years (2000? in Hamburg) - still giving me goose bumps... How blessed we are to be part of this miracle...

  5. I was in Copenhagen as well and it was such a surprise when I saw 'Agitata' on the programme. It's the song that made me aware of the miracle of Cecilia's voice many years ago and since then I always hoped to hear it live sometime! As Karen said, I really feel blessed.

  6. I agree with you, I was also in Copenhagen and Cecilia was absolutely marvelous. it was thrilling to see her sing Gelido in ogni vena.

  7. When in Bad Kissingen I was so much pleased to hear 5 Vivaldi arias and now I am looking forward to Milano! I hope for "Gelido in ogni vena" (never heard it live) and that Cecilia did not cancel "Sposa, son disprezzata", one of my favourite arias which she sung in Bad Kissingen very touchingly. Did she sing it in Copenhagen and is it in the programme of Stockholm so that I can hope for it?

    1. Cecilia did not sing " Sposa, son disprezzata" in Copenhagen and I think that she has the same program for all the places she performance in the Nordic countries.

  8. So, the current baroque programme will stay the same for the November concerts as well: http://www.palaumusica.cat/en/cecilia-bartoli_307850?month=&date_range=&tag=&external=False&date=&expired=True&cycle=

    1. This programme could be a wonderful DVD....

    2. It does not look like very persuading, just a mix of several tours. But an all-Vivaldi recital could be.

    3. I don't think we will ever get a Live DVD again. Maybe only playbacked ones like Sacrificium. I would kill for a Opera Proibita or Mission live concert DVD!

    4. And Cleopatra virtuosa! (at least an audio recording…)

    5. oh yes! the Cleopatra Virtuosa concert was the most exciting coloratura display I ever heard from Cecilia or any other singer in my life, she was possesed by Farinelli's ghost! I've seen Cecilia on stage 50 times or so since 1993 and Cleopatra virtuosa was her best, period. Cecilia should make a cd with that program!

    6. You are dreaming my friends if you hope a new live dvd (I agree with you Spencer). And a Cleopatra virtuosa in studio ? Unfortunately I don't believe it...

  9. Hi Claudia, when was the Cleopatra Virtuosa concert and which songs did she sang?
    Hope for such a cd if you are that enthousiastic! :-)

  10. Catherine, 'Cleopatra Virtuosa' was Cecilia's concert on her first Whitsun Festival, the one with 'Giulio Cesare'. It was gorgeous. She sang Hasse, Graun, Sartorio, Castrovillari - and Händel.

    My wishlist, apart from 'Cleopatra virtuosa' is: Recording of one of her Händel concerts in 2011, and please, please a DVD of 'Norma'! And 'Iphigénie'. And and and.

    1. Hi Charlotte, thank you for your reply! Sounds indeed like an fantastic concert, great that you were there! So yeah, my wishlist for new cd's and/or dvd's would be the same like yours, especially the 'and and and', for me one 'and' would be Alcina :-)

    That was the Cleopatra Virtuosa Program. As encores she gave Lascia la spina and , I tink, Destero....
    I don't think, we will ever get a Cleopatra Virtuosa CD, cause she specifically made that program up for Salzburg , as it was connected to the theme of that year :Cleopatra.
    There are professional recordings of the Vivaldi II as well as a Händel program, but I think, those are for her own archives and I don't hold up my hopes for them, either.
    But I hope for a rerun of Alcina in 2016/17 and a 4K-production of it -:). and NORMA !!!!!!! Please.
