With VERISMO Anna Netrebko presents her long-awaited new studio album the first in three years displaying her remarkable vocal maturity and reaffirming her status as one of the leading sopranos of her generation.
For Anna Netrebko herself, it was the obvious next step; for her public it promises to be a revelation. The challenging verismo repertoire offers a fascinating portrait of Netrebkos voice in its full maturity. Having reached the latest peak in an already sensational career, the soprano continues her vocal and artistic development in logical fashion, illuminating the stylistic and psychological complexities of verismo with her own special intensity and powers of expression.
Set to be one of the most important and anticipated classical releases of 2016.
VERISMO features Netrebko in the greatest, most irresistible hits of the Grand Italian repertoire of the fading 19th Century, with arias by Puccini, Leoncavallo, Ponchielli, Boito, Giordano and Catalani.
Showcasing brand new interpretations of some of the greatest and most popular opera arias of all time.
A winning classical music team Anna Netrebko and Sir Antonio Pappano now joined on record for the very first time by her husband and tenor Yusif Eyvazov.
Anna Netrebko has reached the heart of the rich, mature dramatic repertoire that allows her to showcase the sheer beauty, endless, wide range of colors and emotion in combination with her distinct and beloved timbre that sets her apart from any other artist, past or present. In many ways this album is a self-discovery for this unique artist, and is destined to reach Annas widest fan-base.
Verismo at the turn of the last century introduced - real life - experience to opera and left behind the romantic approach of Belcanto. Netrebkos recent performances of Verdis Macbeth and Il Trovatore but also her role debut of Manon Lescaut in March 2014 in Rome, have shown that Netrebko is able to combine the most beautiful sound production with the harsh, sometimes brutal and scary reality of those heroines she is awaking to life for us.

No matter, this is still a lovely and most enjoyable recording, showing that Ms. Netrebko retains her reputation as a first rate soprano. In fact, my only complaint concerns her tenor partner, her husband, whose singing evokes the sounds of a dyspeptic sheep.
