Notes & Reviews:

Cecilia Bartoli revisits the early Romantic era of Rossini, Bellini and their contemporaries and views the Bel canto glory days through the eyes of Maria Malibran: Romantic icon, Bel Canto muse, and the most extraordinary opera star of her time. 'Maria' features an incredible variety of music that encompasses four languages and eight world premiere recordings.

Cecilia Bartoli revisits the early Romantic era of Rossini, Bellini and their contemporaries, and views the Bel canto glory days through the eyes of Maria Malibran : Romantic icon, Bel canto muse, and the most extraordinary opera star of her time. Cecilia Bartoli has unearthed many forgotten opera jewels. The album features several world premiere recordings including the prayer 'Se il mio desir Cedi al duol' from the long lost opera Irene by Pacini and the aria 'E non lo vedo Son regina' by Maria's father, the famous Rossini tenor Manuel Garcia. Bartoli also presents the London version of Mendelssohn's 'Infelice' for voice, violin solo and orchestra, where she duets with Maxim Vengerov. The programme also includes popular favourites , such as Bellini's 'Casta diva' from Norma. Maria features an incredible variety of music. Mellifluous Bel canto delights are contrasted with regional flavours from around the world: from Spanish flamenco to Tyrolienne yodelling. The album exhibits Cecilia Bartoli singing in four languages: Italian, Spanish, French and English. Decca. 2007.
