I want to draw attention to a fantastic message that would definitely not fit. She appeared as a fan reaction on the official FB profile of Paka and would definitely deserved more publicity!Paka´s CD and DVD at the end of the year in the official IFPI charts for Czech Republic forged between the absolutely best-selling recordings in the category of classical music! In the last week of 2011 was the second place, in the first week of 2012 saw a tiny drop, but it is still in its category among the most successful. This confirms that the recent successful sale of the Slovak Republic, which became the best-selling album ever at one of webshops, was no accident. I am very pleased that the album sold so well in the Czech Republic, her home country. This is something that the makers of CD and Paka herself, of course, neither dreamed nor tail of the boldest dreams!
Patricia's debut album reached status of gold album in Slovakia!
Patricia received the gold disc from hands of Peter Dvorsky. He was one of the best operatic tenors from the late 70's to the beginning of 90's. Dvorsky received a proposion from Pavarotti and Domingo to act as the 3rd tenor yet before Carreras, but his usual troubles with visa, as we lived behind the iron curtain, prevented Dvorsky to become more known for the popular audience. This fact was confirmed in more interviews.
But what's yet more interesting:
There is a sentence on the end of the article of Barbora Drahovska, PR manager of Viva Musica! Agency, on music4u.sk:
"Patricia would like to release another CD yet before her studies on conservatory. Dramaturgy of the CD is almost prepared, it is really very interesting and has strong potential to appeal to wide audience worldwide."
We already read too highfaluting formulations from Barbora Drahovska, when Viva Musica! Agency named Patricia as the "youngest opera diva". They stopped to use this term after criticism from more sides including mine (I wrote some mails and had a 3 hours lasting discussion in Bratislava with Patricia's father on January this year). But what is clear, they really intend to make an album, which has to appeal to wider audience. It will be very interesting to watch what will they do to make Patricia and her new album really accessible for people abroad. They are still not able to provide easy way to buy the CD&DVD set worldwide and people are still using my English guides to order it in Slovak webshops..
