Already one of the most anticipated classical albums of 2013, this sumptuous, all-Verdi programme is Anna’s heartfelt birthday tribute to the master of Italian grand opera, with selections from Il Trovatore, Macbeth, I vespri siciliani, Don Carlo and Giovanna d’Arco. Music of emotion, power and extraordinary drama – personally selected and performed by the best-selling soprano of the 21st century. 2013 marks Anna’s ten years as a solo performer, and ten years with Deutsche Grammophon. It’s Netrebko’s first solo album in over five years, from the best-selling soprano of the 21st century.
Crowned “the Violetta of our age” (Financial Times), Netrebko is the undisputed superstar – “la prima donna assoluta” (New York Post) – of opera today.
Netrebko lays claim to the tragic repertoire of Italian grand opera: “Already celebrated for her glamorous face and voice, the fiery Russian-born diva has developed into a great tragic performer.” (New York Post)
A decade on from the award-winning Opera Arias, Anna reunites with specialist Verdi conductor Gianandrea Noseda to continue this extraordinary musical journey.
