Sometimes it is my great pleasure to discover something rather special. When recording the Michael Haydn Mass (BIS-CD-859) there was an extremely small part for solo soprano - I believe 2-3 bars only, so small that the soloist wasn't even mentioned. But there was something about that solo that interested me, so I called up the conductor and asked who it was. Then I called Miah Persson to ask, if she would mind coming to my home and sing for me and my colleague Rob Suff. She did, and we fell.  Hard.  So I offered her a solo career and she said 'not yet'. But this gave her confidence, and then she left Sweden for England, and, predictably, broke through, made a couple of CD:s for Hyperion and she was on her way. I managed to persuade her to participate in the Bach Cantata series (Vol 10), and one of those arias is still the non plus ultra for me. Then she came to her senses and has started to record for, i.a., us, and here is one of the results. She's really great. Convince yourselves. And, yes, you get Yevgeny Sudbin, too, in one of the arias.  Swedish CO/Sebastian Weigle are in top shape.  RvB
