LIVE IN ITALY - an album of Italian Songs

with Jean-Yves Thibaudet

and the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca

London Classics - #455981
This is the recording that Jean-Yves Thibaudet, in a conversation with FanFaire, revealed he would be doing with mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli (See Jean-Yves' and Cecilia's discography pages. See also other FanFaire pages on Jean-Yves and Cecilia.)




These two superstars of classical music share equal billing in this recording, in which Cecilia is accompanied in the first part by the string ensemble Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca. Here Cecilia sings songs and arias by Caccini, Handel, Mozart, Bellini, Bizet and Donizetti, among others - selections that for the most part are staples in her recital repertory of 18th century music. The inclusion of the Séguedille from Bizet's Carmen comes as a pleasant surprise. One wonders - is she testing the air waves for this prized mezzo-soprano role?


As mentioned in the Thibaudet pages, Jean-Yves is unique among concert pianists in his professed love for the human voice, which he indulges by frequently accompanying singers on the concert / recital stage. Cecilia is among his favorites.

Note: Cecilia Bartoli made a surprise guest appearance at the Richard Tucker Gala on November 8, 1998 which was broadcast on PBS during the 1998 holiday season.
