Finito!

Mike

I have not one more iota of energy, so this will be short - but so very sweet! These past five days have been some of the most satisfying, glorious and electrifying musical experiences of my life. A million grazie's to the incredible Orchestra of Santa Cecilia, to the fabulous Santa Cecilia Chorus, to their banda, to all the technicians, to the lovely people of Virgin Classics for putting together such a fabulous team, and to the indefatigable Maestro Edoardo Muller. Wow.


I will truly never, ever forget this week.

Glad to hear everything went so well !! Someday you'll have to give us a hint about the content of the recording... ;)

After this accomplishment I'd recommend a tartufo for strenght recovery... Go to piazza Navona and get one from Tre Scalini...

I'm so happy to hear that you had an amazing experience. I love to hear your never-ending gratitude for each and every thing that happens to you. I wish more people lived with your mindset; it would be a happier world.

Can't wait for you to unveil this project!

Congrats you mighty Yankeediva!

I second this Mei's suggestion and should add one special restaurant in Rome: It's called "Tram-Tram" (tram-line 14 or 19, San Lorenzo area, close to Via Tiburtina and "La Sapienza" University). Orecchiette alla Norma either with melanzane or zucchine, are to die for. Spent 5 years in Rome, believe me I know what I'm talking about ;)


I think we can have an idea about the material you've been recording. The 2010 program in Theatre des Champs-Elysees says this

Internet rulez!

Brava! Sounds like a tough but exciting week and from your joy while in it i am guessing we will love it :-) Hope you got at least the weekend to recoup and relax :-) Could you pack up some sun for us here in London and bring it with you? ;-)

I am very excited to hear the new record! Having this recording to document such great music making should be a wonderful feeling. (Insert any quote from the movie "That Thing You Do" here)

BTW - I thought the picture of the Mic at first glance was a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. That would have made you the first mezzo in space!

Another fascinating look at the process, as always. Someday please write about how these great projects get set up - how all of the pieces come together before you actually start recording. Thanks!
