Next to the great maestro Daniel Barenboim, this all-Russian programme shows the different sides of Anna Netrebko's personality, as well as her stunning virtuosity and captivating voice. The works performed here and composed by Russian composers Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky suit perfectly the former pupil of Valery Gergiev at the Mariinsky Theatre.
It was not the first time that Barenboim and Netrebko performed together. They released In the Still of the Night, an album of art songs, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival in 2009, which features the same programme. Here gathered on the Berlin Philharmonie prestigious stage, Barenboim and Netrebko captivated and charmed the audience who thanked the two performers with a standing ovation.
