Anna Netrebko's new album builds on the first disc with arias and scenes from popular Italian operas.

First and foremost there are of course arias from La traviata and Lucia di lammermoor - roles which Anna Netrebko has already sung to great acclaim in Munich and Los Angeles.

This is grand opera throughout: a roller-coaster ride of strong emotions with the fragile courtesan Violetta, the innocent sleepwalking Amina, the desperate mad scenes of Elvira and Lucia, the sad willow song and prayer of Desdemona, and as an encore the alluring O mio babbino caro from Gianni Schicchi.

"The Russian soprano Anna Netrebko's second solo recording focuses on bel canto repertoire. In her booklet-note she cites Renata Scotto as one of her main influences. The lessons are well learnt - she's a singer of evident intelligence and imagination - and built on a solid Kirov technique. Understandably, the reviews have been just as impressive." Editor's Choice - Gramophone Magazine (Awards 2004)

"Few sopranos sing bel canto with the natural beauty she supplies." BBC Music Magazine, September 2006
