Alexa Petrenko is especially excited about this week’s edition of Sunday Night at the Opera. Here’s what she has to say:
“One of my favourite singers, mezzo soprano Cecilia Bartoli, is celebrating 30 years of recording constantly remarkable CDs with Decca Classics. We will revisit her 2014 disc “St Petersburg”, filled with world premiere recordings of hidden treasures that had been locked up in the Mariinsky Library for over 200 years. These songs were written by German and Italian composers for the Russian court of three 18th century Tsaristas: Anna, Elizabeth, and Catherine the Great.”
Sunday Night at the Opera airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
