Happy birthday to me. This arrived just in time. Thank you, dear. The voice is as good as new. Perhaps she is immortal, a goddess. There is only one Bartoli.
OMG. Track 2 from Orlando Furioso is magnificent. Spectacular phrasing. Sigh. She knows that it's all in the music.
The ensemble is completely with her. They are Ensemble Matheus conducted by Jean-Christophe Spinosi. I hope you weren't expecting a regular review.
I wish you could see me smiling.
