Notes & Reviews:

The long-awaited studio album from beloved diva Anna Netrebko, Verismo features magnificent Italian arias from the late 19th century, composed by Puccini, Leoncavallo, Ponchielli, Boito, Giordano, Cilea and Catalani. Netrebko illuminates the stylistic and psychological complexities of verismo like no other with her distinct timbre and power of expression. She is joined by the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano, and tenor Yusif Eyvazov.

The Guardian, 15th September 2016
Extracts from 10 operas show her voice reaching an exciting maturity, its increased weight matched by even more gleam, fizz and expressive projection. She has yet to sing most of these roles on stage, but inhabits them convincingly...Pappano is, as ever, the ideal supportive conductor, and the orchestra plays as if it loves Netrebko's every note.

San Francisco Chronicle, 1st September 2016
The results are nothing short of magnificent. In familiar excerpts by Cilea, Giordani, Puccini and more, Netrebko deploys her increasingly dark and weighty vocal tone, along with the expressive fervor that has always been a hallmark, to produce readings that excite and delight the listener.

Sunday Times, 4th September 2016
[Manon Lescaut], along with the Riddle Scene from Turandot, is Netrebko close to her best. she could declaim the text more incisively, but there is no denying the glory of her voice, more "fleshy" in timbre and exciting at the top, or its suitability for Puccini's Tosca and Butterfly. Pappano's deluxe accompaniments are sumptuously played.

The Times, 26th August 2016
Her rich, dark chocolate and red wine tone is the main sell here, along with her satisfyingly growly low register and wall-shaking (even through your home speakers) top notes...Pappano and the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia also go full pelt, swaggering, moody and full-blooded throughout.

Financial Times, 26th August 2016
All sung with plenty of voice and abandon...when she settles into a long extract from Puccini's Manon Lescaut, with tenor husband Yusif Eyvazov and Antonio Pappano conducting, the recital hits an impressively impassioned peak.
