Monday Morning Mendelssohn (and Handel) with Miah Persson

You know how you hear or see one thing, then that gets you to looking around for more? Well, here’s where that led me this morning. After listening to her recital from September 2, I decided to look for reviews of Miah Persson's performance. I did not find any, but I did come cross this concert:

On September 6, 2013, Miah Persson participated in the season opening concert of the NDR Symphony Orchestra. She sang two beautiful arias with soloists from the NDR Youth Symphony Orchestra—one very familiar (Let the bright Seraphim), and the other brand new to me (Mendelssohn's concert scena, Infelice)

Also included in the concert: Handel's Water Music and Elgar's Enigma Variations. The entire program is available at Arte LiveWeb (but these are the best bits right here!)

Georg Friedrich Handel   (1685 – 1759)
"Let the bright Seraphim"

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809 – 1847)
"Infelice" – Scena ed Aria B-flat major, op. 94
