Cecilia Bartoli has today unveiled a series of new projects with Decca Classics. She has announced her first ever catalogue box set of Rossini recordings, a brand new Vivaldi album, and a new label Mentored by Bartoli to nurture outstanding artists – starting with the debut recording of Mexican tenor Javier Camarena.

Each of the three projects was revealed as part of an event at the Haus für Mozart in Salzburg – the city where Bartoli signed her first Decca contract on 15 August 1988 and a place which is dear to her heart as Artistic Director of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival. Javier Camarena also performed during the launch.

In a Rossini-box Bartoli brings together her complete recorded repertoire from Rossini’s oeuvre in a beautiful, limited edition set of 15 CDs and 6 DVDs, marking 150 years since the composer’s death. It includes a previously unreleased recording of Salvatore Sciarrino’s orchestration of Giovanna d’Arco cantata with Riccardo Chailly, rediscovered in the Decca archives.
