Notes & Reviews:

This beautiful work combines a story by Kim Maerkl with J. S. Bach's timeless cello suites to transport the listener back in time to 1725 Italy. The story follows the life of a young girl, Adelina, who grows up in the Pieta, an orphanage and music school, and one day she is given the opportunity to perform in a Venetian Palace. Opera star Thomas Hampson narrates the story, and world renowned cellist Daniel Muller-Schott brings the Suites to life.


Music and Story for a Relaxing Evening
The mix of story and music on this CD is unparallelled. The cello performance by Daniel Muller-Schott is captivating and the narration by Thomas Hampson is engaging. I own several CD's from Kim Maerkl and her story telling never fails to impress. Sit back, dim the lights and listen to this beguiling story and Bach's Cello Suites.
