Editorial Reviews

The new faces of Opera present Opera favorites in a glamorous live concert recording: Anna Netrebko, Elina Garanca, Ram¢n Vargas and the highly acclaimed young French baritone Ludovic T‚zier sing a wide range of Italian and French Opera arias. This recording features highlights from three gala concerts (July/August 2007) at Baden-Baden's Festspielhaus: surely the hottest event of the summer! Universal. 2007.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elina Garanca November 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
THis is a beautiful performance with some really fun selections. The pieces that Anna Netrebko and Elina Garanca sing together are sublime, all four singing a piece from Rigoletto is hilarious and Anna Netrebko's performance of a piece by Lehar is fun, captivating and charming. I don't know how she can fly all over the stage and still have breath to sing without apparent difficulty, but she does! All the selections are so excellent that it's hard to pick out just a couple. This is a CD I will watch/listen to many times with great pleasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starry, starry night... November 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
How I envy those present in this live performance this July in Baden-Baden.
The programme was so well-chosen, the singers so top notch, the two ladies particularly full of starry quality both vocally and visually...
Back to the singing. Anna Netrebko here sings Norma's excerpt, and places herself in headon competition with Maria Callas.
Well, I have heard Callas's, as well as Sutherland's. Anna's is completely on par with these two illustrious predecessors. Her coloratura, well, is surely improving. The last part of this long aria is sung in an immaculately soft coloratura that challenges the best sopranos. Her smoky voice is reminiscient of Callas, yes, but I think the latter part of Callas's career really saw her in an inevitable vocal decline, whereas Netrebko's singing is actually improving with her maturity. Honestly, vocally I think Anna outshined her predecessor in this piece.
Ramon Vargas, a tenor often shovelled to the background (well, he hasn't got much looks), is a real lyrical tenor. I particularly love his duet in Bizet's Pearl Fishers: highly affecting and beautiful in every respect.
It is in fact the best performance of Terzier in that evening. Well, the Toreador's Song isn't every baritone's cup of tea. Apart from Ruggiero Raimondi, I haven't heard one single fully satisfying version, Van Dam, Hvorostovsky, Ramey etc. included.
The star of the stars that night is mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca.
Her solo aria is simply heart-ripping. What singing! What a mezzo-soprano!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classical Feast December 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These voices and their musical choices are incomparable. (I'm a past Voice Major).Gone are the early classical/opera days of "plucked hens squawking" and weird pinched male voices. People who say they don't like classical/opera should give it another try. I'm seeing the gorgeous Anna Netrobka in person in La Boheme at the Lyric Opera in Chicago in March 2013!! I got the tickets within minutes of hearing her on Youtube!

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Willow December 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Live performances are both interesting and, with a cast of this worth a very rewarding experience. Anna Netrebko is certainly a delight with a fine voice and she alone makes this a worthwhile purchase. It is a great shame that the applause was not edited. The clapping on this CD is awful, it is loud and long after each aria. It ruins a nice CD.
