PHOTOS, concert at the Athenaeum in Bucharest, November 29

What I felt tonight is hard to describe. I cried a lot, same as most of the people gathered at the Athenaeum tonight, supporting Angela's cause, supporting all those in need. It was beautiful. So, so beautiful. A perfectly shaped program of pious songs and two touching opera arias. Visa d'arte was so out of this world, reminding me of the first time I listened to it live, at the Royal Opera House, six years ago. Same uplifting feelings, same tears. 

Thank you is everything I could say to Angela, but it's not enough. It was such a noble gesture! So well received! I'm so happy I went and I contributed to the cause. This is now a dear memory, one more connected to Angela's fantastic power to reach my soul.

Here's the program:

Mascagni - Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana
Frank - Panis Angelicus
Schubert - Ave Maria
Refice - Ombra di Nube
Mozart - Ave Verum Corpus
Popescu - Privegheati si va tugati
Humulescu - Iubi-te-voi doamne
Pann - Tatal nostru

Verdi - Nabucco - Va pensiero
Puccini - Tosca - Vissi D'arte
Puccini - Gianni Schicchi - O mio babbino caro

The National Anthem of Romania

The "George Enescu" Philharmonic orchestra was conducted by Tiberiu Soare.

  1. Intr-adevar, gestul Angelei a fost mai presus de orice cuvinte…ne-a daruit alinare cu vocea ei divina si ne-a dovedit inca o data ca este un artist si un suflet extraordinar. A fost o seara de neuitat. Multumim Irina pentru poze si “La multi ani!” de ziua Romaniei!

  2. A fost pur şi simplu minunat! O voce divina plina de căldură şi pasiune. Întreaga sala a vibrat împreună cu sufletul Angelei! Mulţumim pentru generozitate marii noastre interprete, corului, instrumentistilor şi dirijorului Tiberiu Soare. Maria Christina
