  7. Asty'uttarasyām dishi devatātmā
    himālayo nāma nagādhirājah /
    Pūrvāparau toyanidhī vagāhya
    sthitah prithivyā iva mānadandah //

    "There is, in the North, the divine-souled
    Lord of mountains named Himālaya.
    Diving into the Eastern and Western oceans,
    he stands like the measuring rod of the earth."

    With that very first verse from Kālidāsa's celebrated Sanskrit poem entitled Kumāra-sambhava, I wish a lofty New Year to everyone, to you Klaus and to Cecilia who is like the Himālaya Queen of divine singing, with thoughts for our dear friend Ton, thanks to whom I could attend the Barbican concert on 18th December.

  8. Thanx dear Klaus - same same to everybody!Karen

  9. I wish everyone a happy year full of beautiful music bringing joy to you.

  10. Dear everyone,
    you NEED to watch the movie "Das brandneue Testament". It is beautiful, very clever, funny - and: it has lots of Cecilia in it! The movie uses Scarlatti's "Mentre io godo" twice from "Opera Proibita" and Händel's "Lascia chio pianga" from "Rinaldo". I was so excited to hear Cecilia sing, it fits the movie so perfectly... You can also hear Purcell's "O Solitude" with Andreas Scholl, and Bach and some Rameau. My warmest recommendations!
