Berlin New Years Concert

The Berlin New Year's Concert streamed on medici.tv today.

Georg Friedrich Haendel

  • Adelaide: "Scherza in mar la navicella" 

  • Agilea: "Ah che sol ... Mʼadora lʼidol mio" 

    Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
  • Pleasure: "Lascia la spina" 

    Amadigi di Gaula
  • Aria of Melissa (encore)

These are the parts with Cecilia Bartoli.  She wore a green dress for the first two arias and the pants outfit shown above for the second two.

The rest of the concert was Rameau, Dvorak and Brahms, a very unusual and therefore pleasing group of pieces.  Except for "Lascia la spina", of course, I had not heard her perform the other arias before.  Some very cute games were played with an oboist, and then in the encore with the oboist and a trumpeter.
