  4. Read NY Times Sunday magazine article on Danielle de Niese and fournd her “Lascia ch’io pianga” on YouTube – THEN found your version. IMHO, way better!!! So beautiful. Thanks for sharing your talent!

  5. BRAVA MISS IORDACHESCU!
    I just listened to your beautiful rendition of ‘Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix’, and, I must say, this is music making of the highest order. You sound luscious, ‘chic’ as Saint-Saëns no doubt would have wanted, the vocal line is perfect, and so is your French diction (and I am a native French speaker). Congratulations also to your wonderful pianist, she gave us all the orchestra on the keyboard! Best wishes and happy Christmas.

Voi reveni aici. Imi permiti sa te trec in lista blogurilor pe care le citesc ? Poate asa mai castigam un adept-doi !
