Cecilia Bartoli Mission on 2LP

Autumn 2012 marks the release of Mission, a sensational new album from the world's best-selling classical artist Cecilia Bartoli and a project with international politics, religious conflict, diplomatic secrecy, spying and sensational music at its heart. 

Following the exceptional artistic and commercial success of 2009's Sacrificium (which earned Cecilia her fifth Grammy award), Cecilia Bartoli now turns to the early baroque period for the first time in her recording career and uncovers a treasure of beautiful music in an album almost entirely composed of world premiere recordings.

The album showcases the music of little-known Italian composer Agostino Steffani (1654–1728), and includes solo arias of various moods and styles, several duets, solo numbers with chorus, all sung in Italian, and instrumental interludes that create an organic transition from one piece to the next and an arc that reaches from the beginning to the end of the album.

Steffani's story is mysterious at the very least; his name is largely absent from studies of Italian music despite holding senior court positions during his lifetime and contemporary accounts acknowledging him as one of the greatest opera composers of the period, as well as “the acknowledged master of the vocal duet” (Colin Timms).

Among the distinguished names appearing on Mission is star French counter-tenor Philippe Jaroussky who features in a first-time collaboration with Cecilia on a selection of duets, alongside the Coro della Radiotelevisione Svizzera, the period orchestra I Barocchisti from Lugano, Switzerland, and conductor Diego Fasolis.

Cecilia Bartoli Mission Track Listing:

LP1
1.   Schiere invitte, non tardate
2.   Ogni core può sperar
3.   Ove son? Chi m'aita? In mezzo all'ombre...Dal mio petto
4.   Più non v'ascondo
5.   Amami, e vederai
6.   T'abbraccio, mia Diva...Ti stringo, mio Nume
7.   Mie fide schiere, all'armi!...Suoni, tuoni, il suolo scuota
8.   Sposa, mancar mi sento...Deh non far colle tue lagrime

10.  Si, si, riposa, o caro...Palpitanti sfere belle
11.  Notte amica al cieco Dio
12.  Combatton quest'alma  

LP2
1.   A facile vittoria
2.   Tra le guerre e le vittorie
3.   Foschi crepuscoli
4.   Dell'alma stanca a raddolcir le tempre...Sfere amiche, or date al labbro
5.   La cerasta più terribile
6.   Serena, o mio bel sole...Mia fiamma...Mio adore
7.   Dal tuo labbro amor m'invita 
8.   Deh stancati, o sorte
9.   Svenati, struggiti, combatti, suda
