A stunning selection of arias from the Savoy Hotel in London
Revisit a jaw-dropping recital by the divine Cecilia Bartoli near the beginning of her storied career, aged 25 and already at the height of her powers. Accompanied by pianist Georg Fischer at the Savoy Hotel in London, the young diva performs a series of arias and melodies with an absolutely breathtaking power and agility over the entirety of her expansive range.
Bartoli enchants the London audience with her warm and rich timbre, deployed with emotion and technical virtuosity in a repertoire that shows her adaptability and comfort in a wide-ranging repertoire, from Baroque songs by Pergolesi and Giacomelli (the gorgeous “Sposa son disprezzata,” popularized by and often falsely attributed to Vivaldi) to classic bel canto arias by Mozart and Rossini. She also has the acting skills of a born entertainer: be sure not to miss the delightful theatrics of "Voi, che sapete" or the dazzling, almost superhuman vocal runs of "Una voce poco fa"...
