Verdi:

Lo spazzacamino


Russian-born soprano Rita Streich, also known as the ‘Viennese Nightingale’, was a much-admired singer of the post World War Two era, who made many popular recordings.

Her bright pearly voice was a light coloratura, and her repertoire included much lieder, as well as operas by Mozart, and also classical Viennese operetta.

Rita Streich’s naturally vivacious and charming personality comes across in this delightful collection of various light musical ‘bon-bons’ which is drawn from her immensely popular recordings of the 1950’s. She was adept in several languages and so very well equipped to sing this eclectic mixture of vocal waltzes, songs and arias from operas, opéras comique and operettas, which show off her range of vocal abilities, from her effortless coloratura to her sweet, melting way with a melody.

The collection includes some old favourites, less familiar pieces and some rarities. There are pretty vocal waltzes such as Johann Strauss’ Voices of Spring, the Shadow Song from Meyerbeer’s Dinorah and Luigi Arditi’s Parla Waltz, lilting melodies such as Delibes’ Les filles de Cadix, Saint-Saëns’ beautiful Le rossignol et la rose and Verdi’s delightful Lo spazzocamino, arias from Suppé’s operetta Boccaccio (or The Prince of Palermo) and Dvorˇák’s gorgeous Song of the Moon from Rusalka. There are also rarer pieces by less well-known composers, such as a Dell’Acqua’s song Villanelle, Czernik’s tarantella Chi sa?, and an aria from Benjamin Godard’s opera Jocelyn.

“…she delights the ear from start to finish. Highly recommended, this true Original.” Gramophone Magazine

1CD + 1DVD

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 THE soprano album of Giuseppe Verdi’s Anniversary Year.

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.

“her soprano now offers darker colours and greater weight than it ever did before...she makes every heroine leap before us, fully alive, each widely different from the other...Along the way we also get some of Netrebko’s slippery flights of coloratura, but you can’t have everything in life.” The Times, 16th August 2013 ****

“The big surprises here are the three Lady Macbeth solos...The singing is big and bold, occasionally smudgy when agility is required, but the new vocally expansive Netrebko, idiomatically supported by Noseda’s Turin forces, will undoubtedly excite her fans.” Sunday Times, 8th September 2013

“Her voice has grown in opulence of late, and you also notice greater concentration and subtlety in her declamation...her Lady Macbeth, turned on by power but falling apart under the weight of it, is chilling. Yet greater dramatic incisiveness has come at the price of agility” The Guardian, 19th September 2013 ****

“In many ways, Netrebko justifies her decision to tackle Verdi. She provides singing of sufficient amplitude and power to encompass the needs of Elisabeth de Valois...[and] is at her most expressive and skilled as Leonora, her tone firm and fleshy, her lines nicely shaped and her genuine trill coming in useful.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2013 ****

“this is a very serious record by a serious singer in tip-top vocal shape...Netrebko's habitual risk-taking has not deserted her here - this set never feels like a careful assemblage of 'best' takes - and yet there's a vocal security and maturity that's not always been there before...A certain record of the year.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2013

“her voice isn’t a powerhouse, steely dramatic soprano, but it’s certainly far bigger, darker and heavier than ever before: it’s blossomed into a nigh-perfect ‘spinto’ instrument, opulent and full-bodied rather than metallic, but with plenty of bite when needed...It isn’t flawless...But with such a magnificent sound and such dramatic commitment it barely matters.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 12th August 2013
