Product Description

CD95362 Some Cristina Deutekom rarities

Few singers seem as popular with OperaShare members as Cristina Deutekom, and recently I noticed on Youtube some things that were new to me. Some of the previous Deutekom uploads to OperaShare also contain some one-time ventures into what was for her unusual repertory. I have tried to bring together here various of her performances that for one reason or another I consider 75 minutes of music. Bit rates and sound quality vary according to original sources, but most are pretty good. I don't have any more information than I give here, but most of these performances seem to come late in her career from Holland--live concerts or TV programs.

Rare Mozart: 01 "Ich bin die erste Saengerin" Der Schauspieldirektor (Mozart) Christine [sic in 1962] Deutekom, Wilma Driessen and Simon van der Geest; conductor Anton Kersjes, 1962 02 "Come scoglio" Cosi fan tutte (Mozart) Amsterdam, 1969 03 "Or chi mi dici mai" Don Giovanni (Mozart) unknown venue and date; maybe Dutch TV 1980s?

And by the way, if you want to know why the TV studio audience is screaming with laughter, just take a look at this Youtube link:

Rare excursions into later Verdi: 04 "La luce langue" Macbeth (Verdi) live 1982. 05 "Teco io sto...O qual soave brivido" with Alfredo Cupido, Dutch TV, 1983 or 84 06 "Morro ma prima in grazia" live 1983 (I included this because for some reason the EMI LP/CD from the Scottish Opera did not record or include this aria in its studio highlights) 07 "Madre, madre piestosa vergine" La forza del destino (Verdi) 08 "La vergine degl'angeli" Laforza del destino (Verdi) (these two selections from a concert with the Zwolle Men's Chorus, ca. 1979) 09 "La fatal pietra" Aida (Verdi) with Bruno Prevedi, 1974

From the same concert: 10 "Tu qui, Santuzza?" Cavalleria rusticana (Mascagni) with Bruno Prevedi, 1974

Two operetta arias I have not seen elsewhere: 11 "Draussen in Sievering" Die Taenzerin Fanny Elssler (J. Strauss) Dutch TV 1986 12 "Ich bin verliebt" Schoen ist die Welt (Lehar) Dutch TV 1986

Two lighter pieces in Dutch: 13 "Mooi Amsterdam" (I took this from Youtube a year or so ago, and since then it seems to have disappeared; a personal song about her world career and her relationship to her home town) 14 "Les anges dans nos campagnes" in Dutch translation, Dutch TV, 1983 or 84
