In the Still of Night
In the Still of Night, in case you have been on the moon, is an album of Russian songs by Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky with Anna Netrebko and Daniel Barenboim. It is from a live performance at last year's Salzburg Festival.
Anna's Russian work cannot be excelled. It is a voice from heaven. If you listen carefully you can hear Pushkin and Dostoevsky whispering in your ear. Perhaps you will long to read The Brothers Karamazov.
