Cecilia Bartoli returns with a majestic new album of world premiere recordings featuring the hidden treasures of the Mariinsky

Bartoli explores these Baroque musical pieces of Tsarist Russia from the courts of three 18th century Tsaritsas: Anna, Elizabeth and Catherine the Great.

Music written by Italian and German composers working for the Russian court, this album sheds new light on an incredible and momentous time for Russia, shaping its politics and culture towards the enlightened West.

Mostly sung in Italian, the album also offers the first opportunity to hear Bartoli sing in Russian.

The music has been intricately researched by Bartoli herself, unlocking the archives of St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Library to uncover music lost for over 200 years.

This album reunites Bartoli with Baroque specialists Diego Fasolis & I Barrochisti.

“Accompanied by the characterful and energetic period-instrument ensemble, I Barocchisti, under the direction of Diego Fasolis, she offers a selection that showcases her impeccable coloratura technique as well as her ability to spin seemingly endless legato lines in an expressive, quietly gleaming mezza voce.”
10/25/2014 -The New York Times

“This is a triumph for Bartoli and a triumph for Decca, locally supporting its super-diva in yet another fascinating project, lavishing it with a beautifully produced book, excellently documented and illustrated.” -International Record Review

“St. Petersburg is a thing of beauty that collectors, as well as Bartoli fans, will want to own.” -The Sunday Times
