Finally, Decca gets around announcing the new CD :
The announcement comes with a nice short video and the picture above seems to be the final artwork for the cover.
There will be three world premiere recordings. As for the rest, we will have to wait a little bit and see, what else beyond Renato's post about the tour program will reveal.

Realease date in seems to be November 10 .

Cecilia on vinyl

I know three vinyl LPs from / with Cecilia Bartoli: Mission (2012), La scala di seta (live, Pesaro, 1989) and Mozart's Requiem (Solti & ViPhi in the Stephansdom 1991).
Does anyone know more vinyl albums? I would be glad about information and hints, because LPs are still the more beautiful album.
