Cecilia Bartoli reveals latest mission

Be the first to hear songs from Cecilia Bartoli's highly-anticipated new album, Mission.

The classical music world nibbles anxiously on its fingernails in anticipation of the latest album release from dazzling mezzo Cecilia Bartoli. But her latest album, Mission, is laced with mystery. The singer will be revealing a series of webisodes hinting at the identity of the composers she is recording, who will remain incognito until the final release date at the end of August.

Each video contains a code allowing viewers to unlock album tracks after August 20 – before they are released to the general public.

What is known about the new album is that Bartoli is recording with Swiss group Barocchisti directed by Diego Fasolis.

With a staggering 8 million CDs sold, more than 100 weeks ranking in the international pop charts, numerous Golden Discs, four Grammys (USA), nine Echos and a Bambi (Germany), two Classical Brit Awards (UK), and the Victoire de la musique (France) under her  belt, Bartoli may be classical music’s biggest-selling artist.

View the first two webisodes below. Limelight will be releasing five more over the next month ­– so stay tuned!
