  • In the week following its release, Verismo has been heralded as “One of the most anticipated opera albums of the year” by the Associated Press. The AP goes on to note that the album “justifies the excitement… Besides the pure vocal pleasure it brings, this album serves as a landmark in the remarkable growth of a singer who began more than two decades ago as a light lyric soprano, moved into bel canto, then Verdi and Puccini and recently even ventured into Wagner.”

    “It’s been a long while since a classical recording inspired the kind of speculation and anticipation that has attended soprano Anna Netrebko’s new recital disc dedicated to verismo arias — and even longer since a release made good on its promise in so thrilling a fashion,” adds the San Francisco Chronicle. “The results are nothing short of magnificent. … a powerful artistic statement from a great and still growing singer.”
