CECILIA BARTOLI. BELLINI. NORMA. A NEW VISION
In collaboration with Giovanni Antonini, Riccardo Minasi and Maurizio Biondi, Cecilia Bartoli restores the sound and spirit of Norma in a landmark Decca recording based on the opera's original sources.
Cecilia Bartoli leads a fabulous cast in Decca's groundbreaking new recording, which presents Vincenzo Bellini's Norma in a form that is complete with the exquisite mix of vocal and instrumental colours that Bellini intended for his 'tragic opera'. Sumi Jo, John Osborn and Michele Pertusi respectively illuminate the roles of Adalgisa, Pollione and Oroveso. The sounds of period instruments from the composer's time, brought to life by Orchestra La Scintilla and conductor Giovanni Antonini, underpin and blend with the timbres of a cast carefully chosen to recreate the individual vocal qualities of the opera's roles.
