Who sang Gluck's "Che faro' senza Euridice" on "Exploring Music" on Wednesday, shortly before midnight? Thank you very much.

Hello. Thank you for the wonderful selections in your program on Vienna tonight. I have one question: what is the name of the song at the end of the program? I believe you said that it was composed by Mozart for a girl he was in love with who was born blind. It was so beautiful and tender that I became lost in this world and did not catch all of the information. I would really appreciate it if you can let me know its name so I can find a way to share it with my friends. Thank you.
