Echo Klassik 2008 Awards, held October 19, 2008 in Munich's Philharmonie im Gasteig, was a rousing celebration of all things klassik, but only a few ~classical stars~ posed for the paps...like the fierce bebees above: Cecilia Bartoli, Danielle de Niese, and Andrea Bocelli. Hmmm...♪♫one of things is not like the others...one of these things just doesn't belong.♪♫
Winners were determined by the jury for the best classical music recordings of the year, including DVDs and CDs. The 2008 liszt of WIN included Female Singer of the Year Cecilia Bartoli for her Maria Malibran CD, while Male Singer of the Year went to Philippe Jaroussky for his Carestini CD. Best Duet went to Netrebko & Villazón, while Danielle de Niese won for her CD of Haendel Arias...and José Carreras took home the Lifetime Achievement Award. For a full list of winners, go here.
Andrea Bocelli didn't win anything, but just came to bask in the glow of all that classical thunder. We cannot tell you how much we <3 la Ceci, but if she doesn't retire those two dresses, we're gonna bust down her wardrobe and shut it all down. We don't care how many Tibetan organic silkworms died for them! Congrats to all the ~superstars~!
Let's start with Danielle de Niese's gown! Superstar, where you from, how’s it going? I know you, gotta clue, whatcha doing?
