And now for a bit of Vivaldi



I'm just in awe.

Wow, that is awesome! What amazing control she has! I think Cecilia Bartoli must have been genetically engineered - she must have wee valves in her voice box, with special rapid-firing muscles to open and shut them.

Thanks for posting this Leanne.

Hi Leta - I know. She's unbelievable. Kind of makes me want to crawl under a rock...

Oh well, there's those of us who can DO, and those of us who TRY but enjoy it anyway!

Cheers,

Leanne.

I let my hubby Willem listen to this performance and he was so impressed he immediately hunted down the DVD of that very same concert in Italy and ordered a copy for us. Yay!

Hi Leta - Can you let me know the details of the DVD because I'd be interested in obtaining a copy too.

It's called "Cecilia Bartoli - Live In Italy [1998]" and you can get it from Amazon. Try this link - hope it works: Cecilia Bartoli - Live in Italy

Hi Leta,

Thanks - the link works beautifully. Now I've added it to my "wish list" :-)
