Mission – the latest release by Cecilia Bartoli, one of the biggest stars in classical music photographed by Uli Weber. This is the newest instalment in a collaboration between the two which has extended to the previous four album covers. The new release Mission showcases the music of Italian composer Agostino Steffani (1654-1728) – little known but whom is actually acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of the period. The appeal of this project inspired Bartoli admirer, friend and global best-selling author Donna Leon to write a mystery novel – Jewels of Paradise, which features the composer’s story at the centre of its plot, to accompany Cecilia’s album. Below is the new album cover depicting Cecilia as never seen before, a portrait of Cecilia with Donna Leon and the previous four albums shot by Uli Weber.
