Synopsis

Album Description
Anna Netrebko's first live solo album and first Lieder album is accompanied by star conductor/pianist Daniel Barenboim. This was the concert event of the Salzburg Festival 2009. Netrebko's all-Russian recital is accompanied by Barenboim's masterful, idiomatic playing. Anna's voluptuous voice surrenders completely to the haunting, soulful melodies of songs by Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and others. In The Still Of Night showcases Netrebko's artistry and deep connection to art songs from her homeland. This recording is a natural follow-up to her Grammy ®-nominated Russian Album. This album will be released in the U.S. as a Deluxe Version, packaged in a beautiful hardcover book which contains additional texts, full translations of song texts, exclusive pictures and press quotes.

CD Reviews

Ravishingly Russian
Chip M. Clark | Denver CO | 04/29/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Russian music of the late 19th-Century, full of emotional angst and turmoil. Track 8, from Rimsky-Korsakov's Four Songs, Op. 2 No. 2 "Plenivshis' rozoy, solovey" (Captivated by the Rose, Nightingale) is about the unrequited love of a Nightingale for a Rose. While the Rose listens to the beautiful song, it does not understand why the song is so solemn. Perhaps not understanding` Russian makes the song even more pointed: Netrebko's voice is so very divine and yet so very despondent. She sang this song on her album Souvenirs (2008), but the live performance here captures much more of the agony.

As always, exceptionally beautiful
Wickie L. Bowman | Pasadena, CA USA | 05/27/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After putting out the standard Puccini/Verdi arias albums, Netrebko has released two stunning albums of Russian songs. Yes, she has a language advantage over the majority of singers of this repertoire, but the nuances and beauty of her voice shine through, as no other soprano. It is also a treat to hear these songs, adequately accompanied by Barenboim, because they are not recorded that often. Since childhood I have been a sucker for 'Songs My Mother Taught Me' (Dvorak), and it brought tears to my eyes to hear her sing it. She is an exceptional artist in all respects."
Perfect!

"If you do not yet know Anna Netrebko, this disc is a great place to start. A live recital, with only a piano to accompany her, it is easy to focus on and enjoy her divine voice. It does not get better than this. The only complaint I have is the price of this single-disc release. Well, with the Euro in decline, maybe the price of this import will come down in the next few weeks. The main reason for posting this message is to highlight a new rising star for your attention. If you enjoy Anna Netrebko, you won't want to miss Ms. Ailyn Perez. The Violeta of this decade, based on what I heard recently at the Staatsoper's La Traviata."
