Synopsis: Cecilia Bartoli, still only in her thirties, has risen to the top of the opera world. Her astonishing mezzo coloratura has been called the finest since those of Marilyn Horne and Teresa Berganza, her recordings have sold in the millions, and her concerts are sold out in hours. What has made Bartoli such a sensation? Cecilia Bartoli: The Passion of Song provides a compelling insight into Bartoli's background and character. The book includes exclusive interview material with the singer herself; her mother, Silvana Bazzoni, Bartoli's one and only teacher; her manager; the top opera directors who have worked with her; and her record producer. It also examines the marketing of Bartoli as a young, attractive woman; the effect that this has had on Bartoli's reputation as a singer; and the myths and prejudices that now surround her. The book is complete with a detailed discography and performance guide to the first ten years of Bartoli's career, charting her development as a performer.
Review: Cecilia Bartoli--The Passion of Song is really two books in one. The first is author Kim Chernin's account of a growing fascination with Bartoli's voice and the desire to meet the singer and interview her about her art. The second is a performance guide by coauthor Renate Stendhal that traces the singer's career from its beginnings on Italian television to her debuts at La Scala and the Met.
Neither author takes a particularly critical look at Cecilia Bartoli's talents or her career, but fans of the singer will find plenty of information about their idol, from her early years studying opera under the tutelage of her mother Silvana Bazzoni, also a singer, to the master classes she now teaches in concert with Ms. Bazzoni.
