Rita Streich (soprano)

Rita Streich, famed for her peerless coloratura, for her Queen of the Night and her performances of Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann and Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Rita Streich, often dubbed a ‘singing nightingale’ also took time out from a busy career to record miniatures. Several LPs, combined over two (now deleted) Deutsche Grammophon ‘Originals’ are here combined into a 2CD set, showcasing the soprano in popular opera arias, waltz-songs, folk songs (English, American, Russian, Japanese and Yiddish) and lullabies. The waltzes stem from the melodic treasury of the Viennese Strauss dynasty – music of yearning, enchantment and nostalgia, all abetted by Streich’s joyous coloratura. The folk songs and lullabies were recorded in Munich and in Regensburg, in 1962 and 1964. Note-writer Bernhard Uske, describes the result as ‘a glorious carpet of flowers’.

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.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“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

Mesícku na nebi hlubokém 'Song to the Moon' (from Rusalka)

Four Songs, Op. 82: No. 1, ‘Leave Me Alone’


On this disc, Christian Poltéra and Kathryn Stott chart the gradual development in Dvořák’s composition for cello.

The disc includes chamber works that Dvořák composed originally for cello and piano or arranged for the combination including Polonaise in A major, the Rondo in G minor and Silent Woods which was originally a piano duet.

Poltéra also presents his own transcriptions of several violin pieces and songs, including the Violin Sonatina, and Lasst mich allein, alongside the ever-popular Songs My Mother Taught Me and Song to the Moon from Rusalka.

Christian Poltéra and Kathryn Stott are regular chamber music partners and have previously recorded music by Honegger and Frank Martin.

“This recording bathes the listener in a stream of irresistable song that lingers in the memory weeks later. It also proves how well the composer's lyricism translates across timbre and sonority: this 'Song to the Moon' is as searingly effective as any I've heard sung...the recorded sound is ideal.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2013 ****

“[the Sonatina] works particularly well in its new baritone and tenor register...This attests to both the sensitive way in which Poltera has adapted the music to the cello medium and to the deft and affectionate manner in which he plays it. So natural does the Sonatina sound on the cello that you wonder why Dvorak himself never thought of doing it.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
