Sir Simon is poor & A Greek Requiem

Two scoops i fished today on the greek newspapers...

Sir Simon Rattle' s intention of getting married to Magdalena Kozena will cost him half his fortune, o sia 4 million pounds (5,95 mil. euros)!!! This is the sum of money asked by his (ex)wife Candace Allen in order to give him the soooo desired by the maestro divorce... More to be read at the Telegraph but also HERE and HERE


Due to the political situation, the Concert planned to take place on the 22th of July in Lebanon (G. Verdi - Requiem Le Vie dell'Amicizia 2007) has been moved to Rome... What might be of interest is that this, is a really greek Requiem as half of the soloists are greeks....Soprano Alexia Voulgaridou and tenor Mario Zeffiri (real name Botsarakos) will sing next to Olga Borodina and Ildar Abdrazakov under the baton of Riccardo Muti. More to be found at Maestro Muti's website....
