Barenboim hearts Netrebko: "Anna doesn't sing as if music needs her. She sings as if she needs music."

Terrific concert on Arte with Anna and Barenboim. The same material is released on CD called  "In the Still of Night".

Here is the trailer prepared by Deutsche Grammophon where the two artists have so much praise for each another [videos from Arte after jump too]:

One song from the recital we saw tonight on Arte:

Other videos from that recital can be seen here, here, herehere, here, and here [thanks to  Komprimarijus].


  1. You are right! It was terrific and it is wonderful to be able to see again some of those magic moments. Anna is at her best!!!

  2. Totally agree: she is at her absolute best.
    She reached the maturity while preserving that youngish flare of her voice.

  3. Congratulations! I am so happy I found your site!

  4. This is a fabulous CD of two wonderful performers who maintain high standards for perfection. The CD is intimate, personal, soul-searching and comes from the heart.

    Bravo to Anna and Daniel for supreme musicianship
