Some links for you

Euronews filmed the piano rehersal of 'Norma', of course only parts of it are shown (commented in German). And Euronews asked Giovanni Antonini about Norma, he says: 'Questo cambia tutto' (no comments, only him talking in Italian).

And read a very nice and touching German interview that Verena sent me: Chrismon, a Christian newspaper.

A review of her concert in Essen with beautiful high resolution pictures in 'Revierpassagen'.

Program of the Viennese Classics concerts........has been removed

from  the website of the Kammerorchester Basel, it  consisted of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven....
Interesting is, that the Prag website stated, it would be  a brand new program.
Anyway.This is, how it was announced :

Ludwig van Beethoven
"Ah Perfido" Szene und Arie für Sopran und Orchester op. 65

Joseph Haydn

»Berenice, che fai« Kantate für Sopran und Orchester

"Al tuo seno fortunato" Arie des Genio aus "Orfeo ed Euridici"

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

 "Bella mia fiamma.....Resta, o cara", KV 528 (1787)

"Ah, lo previdi!...Ah, t`invola......Deh, non Vacar", KV 272

"Exsultate Jubilate", KV 165 (18a)

So maybe it will change again??

Radio portrait and article

Enjoy a radio portrait of Cecilia, almost half an hour. It's Germain, some of Cecilia's answers in English can be listened to without simultaneous translation. Very nice one. :)

And here an article of German newspaper 'Die Welt'. In the end the interviewer asks her, whether she considers to stage operas just as Villanzon does. She answers, laughing, 'No, no, no, no, much to complicated!' And the journalist ends with the sentence: 'As if singing on Bartoli level was as easy as it sounds with her.'
