Se pieta di me non senti

I heard this piece of music on Radio 3 earlier today and it completely blew me away.  I must get the DVD of the 2011 performance of Handel’s  Giulio Cesare from which it was taken, but in the meantime here’s a clip from Youtube to give you an idea. This is the marvellous Natalie Dessay as Cleopatra singing the da capo aria Se pieta di me non senti. It’s a truly sublime and moving performance from a singer at the very peak of her prowess. Brava!

    That’s a nice clip from Handel’s Giulio Cesare.

    However, my interest in this morning’s CD Review on Radio 3 was the review of recording of Bruckner’s brilliant Fourth Symphony. The top-rated recording was from the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Günter Wand, a disc I do not currently have.
