Netrebko concert

Netrebko’s NYC concert

Anna Netrebko has appeared in leading roles at the world’s great Opera houses for many years now. However, she has not previously appeared in a recital. That amazing fact will get fixed when Soprano Anna Netrebko will make her New York recital debut with pianist Elena Bashkirova at Carnegie Hall in Stern Auditorium at the Perelman Stage, on Wednesday, October 26 at 8pm.

She will perform a program of songs from two of the most celebrated composers from her native Russia, the late nineteenth-century contemporaries Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky. Much of the repertoire on this recital is featured on her recording In the Still of Night with pianist Daniel Barenboim (Deutsche Grammophon). Here are the details:

While many of Netrebko’s roles have been related to coquettish beautiful young women, she has also done much more serious music. Here’s one example:

Performed by Anna Netrebko and Maria Pizzolato
With the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, conducted by Antonio Pappano
