Auf Deutsch

Cecilia has announced the schedule for next year's Whitsun festival here.   There is mention of Cecilia Bartoli singing "Wir hab nun Trauerigkeit" from the Deutsches Requiem, her first appearance that I know of in German. She sang Ravel in Yiddish, but that doesn't count.  Pape will also sing and Barenboim conduct.

This goes with Norma.  Ach.  I think we should expect the recording to be out by then.

There will be a piece by Sofia Gubaidulina.  Gergiev will conduct more than one program.   Maybe I'll feel better by then.
