Notes & Reviews:

Already one of the most anticipated classical albums of 2013, this sumptuous, all-Verdi program 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. This campaign is as much about Anna's incredible decade with her label as it is about this extraordinary new album. It's THE soprano album of Giuseppe Verdi's Anniversary Year. It's the first solo album in over five years, from the best-selling soprano of the 21st century. Over 3.8 million units sold on the Yellow Label over the last decade. 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. Similar artists include Renee Fleming, Placido Domingo, Natalie Dessay, & Elina Garanca.

The Times, 16th August 2013
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.

Sunday Times, 8th September 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.

The Guardian, 19th 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.

Gramophone Magazine, October 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.

BBC Music Magazine, November 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.
