Anna Netrebko and her husband, tenor Yusif Eyvazov, will release a new album of original love songs by Russian producer Igor Krutoy. Available on Deutsche Grammophon September 1, “Romanza” features eighteen tracks of love songs and duets composed for the couple.

Not only is this Anna’s first album with Yusif, but also her first venture outside of operatic repertoire. Krutoy is a close friend of the couple, and this collaboration has yielded a unique musical view into their lives as partners on and off stage.

Anna and Yusif met when they starred together in Manon Lescaut at the Rome Opera in March 2014. Since their marriage in December 2015, they have appeared in concert and on the opera stage together worldwide.
