Elizabeth Watts – New CDs now available at Prelude Records

Andrew Cane - proprietor of Prelude Records in St Giles, Norwich, looks at two new CDs recorded by Hethersett opera singer Elizabeth Watts. Mention this web site when visiting the shop and you can purchase the Bach CD for £12 and the Arne Opera double CD for £15  



In the winter of 2008, soprano Elizabeth Watts gave a concert at Hethersett Methodist Church – an event which made a great impression on all of those lucky enough to attend.  A former Hethersett girl, Liz has now become a star in the world of opera and song.  Her career has gone from strength to strength since winning the Song Prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World in 2007, where she represented England in the Final.  Since then, Liz has been much in demand throughout Europe and the USA.  She has appeared at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, was featured on the cover of Opera Now magazine, and in September will perform at the Royal Albert Hall. 

Liz Watts has also just released two new CD recordings, offering the chance to hear her beautiful voice once more.  Her first CD is a lovely collection of Bach vocal pieces which is sure to appeal widely.  Her other release is an opera by Thomas Arne, “Artaxerxes”, which she performed at Covent Garden to great acclaim. 

Both of these titles are available on Special Offer at Prelude Records - Norwich’s Classical CD shop.  The Bach CD is £12.00 and the Arne opera (a 2 CD set) is £15.00 – but only if you mention this article when buying!  For more information, call Andrew, Keith or Chris at Prelude Records on 01603 628319, or drop in to the shop – 25B St Giles Street, Norwich. 

PS Elizabeth Watts will be singing in a concert at Norwich Cathedral, on 29 October.  Tickets will be on sale at Prelude Records from early March.
