This fall, best-selling mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli looks to the little-known operas of 18th-century Russia on her upcoming release, Cecilia Bartoli– St Petersburg. These Baroque musical treasures were written by Italian and German composers working for the Russian court: specifically, Francesco Araia (at the court 1735–59), Hermann Friedrich Raupach (1759–61), Vincenzo Manfredini (1761–63), and Domenico Cimarosa (1787–91). The works were commissioned under the rules of empresses Anna Ioannovna (1730–40), Elizaveta Petrovna (Elizabeth, 1741–62), and Catherine II (known as Catherine the Great, 1762–96). The three rulers continued and completed the wholesale redefinition of Russia into an enlightened European state that began under Peter the Great. Cecilia Bartoli – St Petersburg, which releases on October 14, aims to shed new light on this incredible and momentous time for Russia, while simultaneously exploring the first instances of operatic music writing in the country.
