i_hear_dead_people_ A day like today a great singer was born ... Henriette, Countess Rossi
(Born as " Gertrude Walpurgis Sontag " ) 3 January 1806 – 17 June 1854
was a #German #operatic #soprano of great international renown. She possessed a sweet-toned, #lyrical #voice and was a brilliant exponent of florid #singing.

#Sontag was born at Koblenz, #Germany as Gertrude Walpurgis Sontag. She made her début at the age of 15. In #1823 she sang at Leipzig in Carl Maria von Weber's Der #Freischütz and in December of that year created the title role in his #Euryanthe.
She was invited to be the soprano #soloist in the first #performances of #Beethoven's #Symphony No. 9 and #Missa #Solemnis on 7 May 1824;
Two years later, she sang the part of #Rosina in Rossini's Il #barbiere di #Siviglia, in which her charming personality and fleet coloratura skills granted her a distinct triumph over the reigning diva, Angelica #Catalani.

In 1827, she was engaged at the #Paris #Italian #Opera, and a year later married Count #Carlo #Rossi. She subsequently #performed at all the major #musical centres of Europe, she was stricken with cholera and died at the age of 48

  •   humanrightsrecitals Thanks for the tag! ️ I noted yesterday there are no female composers presented in your gallery so this was a timely addition. Sontag was not a composer as far as I know, but there might well be works of hers somewhere. In my collection I do have a song by Catalani for instance. I hope you don't feel offended, but please feel free to get some inspiration from the musicians I introduce now and then. All the best! 3w
  •   i_hear_dead_people_ @humanrightsrecitals im not offended at all , thank you . I have no posts of women because i post of musicians who have died or born on the current day and sontag was the first woman ive found since i began 3w
  •   humanrightsrecitals Oh perfect! I love the idea! And I'm intrigued by the new names I get to know through you. I always had this soft spot for those composers or works that are never played anymore. The industry has become so very main stream and quite boring at times. 3w
  •   thoughtproductmusik hey, if your ever looking for some dope beats or just trying to check out some dope hip-hop content, check out my page when you get a minute. Keep doing your thing. 3w

euro_calcio Clamoroso in #Ligabbva spagnola. Dopo lo stop di ieri del #barcelona, cade l'#Atléticodemadrid contro il #Villareal per 1-0 grazie al gol siglato da #Vietto.
Per i campioni di #Spagna prima sconfitta al #calderon del #2014 !
#Real quindi che si porta a +4 sui #Catalani e a +7 sulla squadra di #Simeone, e visto il passo preso da #Ronaldo e compagni sará dura riprenderli.
