My darling Anna Caterina Antonacci appears to be carrying on the tradition and though she did not offer this as an encore at the concert in Rome, it appears it has become a fairly regular encore in her current programme.
What I find as beautiful and touching as Anna Caterina's quiet but intense delivery is the piano work of Donald Sulzen. Nothing really elaborate, nothing show-offy in the accompaniment just a perfect match to the mood set by the soprano. They really do have a remarkable partnership and again I am reminded of that most lauded of accompanist Gerald Moore.
