Classica 'CHOC' (July-August 2013)

5 Stars BBC Music Magazine (August 2013)

'Bartoli is the best current Norma out there.' Gramophone (July 2013)

'There has been a lot of fresh thinking here underpinned by a new critical edition of the opera basaed on Bellini's manuscript.  The sounds of Orchestra La Scintilla are revelatory: crisp, urgent pacing, darker-hued and dramatically thrilling.  The pace, drama and tragedy of the final scene comes off superbly.' BBC Radio 3 'CD Review' (July 2013)

Cecilia Bartoli's Norma evokes the style and artistry of the legendary soprano Giuditta Pasta, the opera's original heroine. The Italian superstar here continues her mission to reveal lost details of expression and emotional variety in music covered by the dark varnish of later performance traditions. Norma, often portrayed as a superhuman priestess, emerges in Bartoli's performance as a woman of flesh and blood, torn between duty and love.

Her interpretation was hailed by the Financial Times as a "radical but convincing rethink of the part." Fonoforum wrote of the "often moving and touching" nature of Bartoli's Norma, following her concert performance of the work in Dortmund in August 2010, while Die Zeit described the singer's prayer-like account of the opera's hit aria "Casta Diva" as "great art, and also a provocation".

"Only in this way can we appreciate once more the true magic, the colour and emotion in this music," observes Cecilia Bartoli in a short essay included as part of the album's elegant hardback presentation. "It was my wish," she continues, "to bring Bellini's opera closer to the soundworld of the bel canto period."
