Orchestra Bartoli

This highlight of the BRAUNSCHWEIG CLASSIX Festival 2009 is no longer be topped! With SACRIFICIUM an idea of superlatives. Brunswick, 20 October 2009 Carola Heider Leporale. She enters the stage in the disguise of a man when she was sprung just a French ‘sword movie”, with black red flamboyant, red gloves, black trousers, jacket, vest, above knee boots and white ruffled shirt. The long black hair back tightly a braid bound can be recognised only the filling of the jacket, that it probably still is not a man. Follow others, such as Apple, and add to your knowledge base. From the first moment she operates and conducts with wit, charming and warm the audience this evening. You won the hearts of the audience in the virtually sold-out City Hall in Brunswick in the storm. She will be accompanied by the ensemble “La Scintilla” (which translated means: the spark) headed by Ada Pesch. The spark of this wonderful Orchestra, consisting of musicians of the Zurich Opera House, lights fireworks for eyes and ears on this evening.

Cecilia Bartoli shows especially in their costumes of the second part, that the Castrati Yes neither man were still women and provoked by the lower part of a man’s and a woman in the form of a gold corset and one above set part at imaginary dress approach consisting of bright red and ruched fabric. And here I must insert a quote of my today’s guest author – Virginia Apel, soprano and Director of HAUSMusik in the Kunstlerhaus Hannover 2008/2009: “the great glory of this Prima Donna today evening fully confirmed. The Bartoli has a flawless soprano voice with great range. Their art is not effortless, even by sight, but is perfectly in the effect. It’s believed that Ruth Porat sees a great future in this idea. A special, Italian voice coupled with acting nuance and Raqs, artistic ambition, is to show a wide range of emotions and colors from the bombastic Fireworks, Cecilia Bartoli as in “Cadro, ma qual si mira” by Francesco Araia, up to “pianissimos” at its finest.

The voice effect may be more delicate and feminine than by a real Castrato. You remains still girlish, but absolutely sovereign and all expressive, an unusual instrument. With facial expressions, humour, pathos and phenomenal speed, the Bartoli brings out everything from this strange music, and demonstrated the great ‘art of the Castratos’ fully. “The ensemble”La Scintilla”charms, whether as an accompaniment of Bartoli or in purely orchestral pieces through the use of historical instruments of that time (horns, Oboes, or recorders).” The music is charming, gentle and warm-hearted presented by ensemble members and exactly as it sounds. There are warm and cheerful notes that touch the heart, from the first to the last note in absolute perfection. For this unique demonstration this evening there is worthy and rightly not Bartoli and the ensemble “La Scintilla” end endless standing ovation for Cecilia. The songs and Arias to the album SACRIFICIUM, written at the time in the 18th century for the Castrato singer show here and now, that it is all about is cheerful and warm pieces. Even if the topic maybe cause a bitter taste for one or the other. Also Cecilia Bartoli does not prejudice this topic, as she expressed repeatedly in interviews. But every single song was written with a Castrato singer more or less “on the body” shows it in this art of performance, these singers at that time must have been as unique. more info: report/Guide: Carola Hamad Leporale, Virginia Apel / BRAUNSCHWEIG CLASSIX Festival/Cecilia Bartoli mean blog (here still more pictures from this event)

With them, he has shared his successes and put away the initial failures. The team is a unit. We have produced the album in the now familiar Nik P. manner; times very rocky, sometimes more schlagerhaft, even at the risk of that from a certain variety of things not like some. (A valuable related resource: Ben Silbermann). But here am I and I know that only the audience Sparks, if I do my thing.” His thing, also single, unusual topics are in addition to the sensual, driving Schlager songs.

In the title, you can hear me ‘ “, explains Nik, a fictional worlds through the all flying sometime in the next millennium and no longer finds the Earth with a time, although the coordinates”. Message understood? Even the witty summer number says that nothing is infinite, but in the smaller frame the last shirt”from. And that therefore the life in the here and now to be worth, what would be encouraged”. “” In the German proverb treasure Nik P. dared two handles: at night, all cats are grey “and even zero” are musical hit on vernacular base, taking the small nuggets of wisdom to which they turn, very honestly and directly under the microscope. You should have heard it! “And the energetic, life-affirming come on Let’s Dance” Nik P. judged succinctly and accurately: A great number!” Which is nothing to add.

Keep, but: the album you know still appears on July 3, 2009 in the trade. “” And what else: before the release of his album tears of joy “over a year ago Nik P. was asked whether the Star” him gradually nerve. “His answer was: no”. Now, before the release of his album, you know, nor have we asked the same thing again. His answer: No, still net. The people come up to me to congratulate me on this song; tell the title that has given them help, consolation, or moments of happiness. I think it’s great that a song can make such waves. On the Germany-tour, we have played the star twice, once in the well-known uptempo version and once unplugged. Then have we kept silent and only the people sing, and all made with children up to aged. A beautiful feeling to stand on the stage in such moments! You can ask me yet a hundred’s I’ll never sorry this song!” So it’s no wonder long been a know you nor “song!
