Today in the ring with world-renowned American soprano Claron McFadden, for Costello’s The Juliet Letters. To this day, people are still writing letters to Juliet, once the better half of Romeo in Verona. Some of them are actually answered by a professor...Costello translated them to music. These letters correspond with Janáček’s ‘letters’ quartet beautifully: ‘Today I wrote my sweetest desire in tones...’ De Volkskrant about the Ragazze’s Janáček CD: ‘***** Physical, rhythmic power that comes from deep within the Ragazze.’
