Concert in Bodrum, August 24

What a great concert! Not only Angela's amazing voice, but also the atmosphere, the care of the organizers for each and every detail, the conductor, Ramon Tebar, paying attention to every sound of the soloists and orchestra and the talented and good looking tenor, the Romanian Teodor Ilincai. It was a concert under the star, on sea shore. Perfect combination.


My favs? I have three: L'altra note in fondo al mare, Song to the Moon and Copacul. Perfect, simply perfect. I thought my third choice would be subjective, but I was wrong. You should have seen and heard the audience applauding at the end! As if it was in their own language, not a foreign one. And I know why, because Angela is telling a story when singing. No matter if you understand or not the lyrics, her voice catches your thoughts and carries them throughout the song. No moment of break, no space for breathing. It was a spell. The wind blowing in the beautiful, silky, white dress (see the last photos below) counted a lot too. Great choice!
