Who is this "lover of darkness" (Amata delle tenebre) in the title of Anna Netrebko's latest album? He is the evil character who causes much female distress, who composers and librettists have taken malicious pleasure in portraying in their works. In her essay L’Opéra ou la défaite des femmes published in 1979 (Éditions Grasset), Catherine Clément had already dedicated her fascinating essay to those women who were assassinated, abandoned, despised, but also exalted throughout the long history of the opera.

It is these heroines that Anna Netrebko has chosen for this album which, in the deluxe hard copy version, includes a film dedicated to the Russian diva. Eagerly anticipated for five years, this new recital is conducted by Riccardo Chailly at the head of the Orchestra of La Scala in Milan. Netrebko's exceptional voice shimmers with a thousand spells in its power and variety in these famous excerpts, onto which she imprints her own fiery temperament. It begins with Cilea's Adriana Lecouvreur (« Poveri fiori »)  and ends with la Mort d’Isolde (« Mild und leise ») consumed by love.

In between these two pieces, there is a feast of sublime arias from Dido and Aeneas (Purcell), The Queen of Spades (Tchaïkovsky) which she has recorded here for the first time, Ariadne's great aria from Ariadne auf Naxos (Strauss), Aida and Don Carlo (Verdi), Tannhäuser and Lohengrin (Wagner), and Puccini's Madama Butterfly and Manon Lescaut. Nothing but beautiful singing, nothing but pleasure thanks to a voice that, over time, continues to blossom in its lower register and, what is more, is lovingly supported by the Milanese musicians. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of Freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
