On November 5, Anna Netrebko released her much anticipated solo album, “Amata dalle tenebre” with Deutsche Grammophon. The album, recorded at Milan’s La Scala with the Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, features arias by Verdi, Wagner, Strauss, Puccini, Cilea, and Purcell.

Limelight Magazine says of her performance:

“She traverses the top and bottom of the voice with ease, and there’s a grandness and sweep to her singing that’s just perfect for mature Verdi.”

NPR adds:

“The aria from Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades finds Netrebko in a rich, effulgent voice dressed in shades of deep purple and impassioned with cinematic fervor. […] Netrebko finds all the bittersweet beauty in Tchaikovsky’s melody; listen for her finely tuned dynamics and the daring glottal effect she produces at the crushing final moment.”
