Reseña de álbum
Violetta, a CD featuring Anna Netrebko, is essentially an album of highlights from La Traviata, and although the focus is rightly on her, the musical quality of all the performances and of the entire album is terrific. The recording comes from a production at the 2005 Salzburg Festival. With an all-star cast that also features Rolando Villazón and Thomas Hampson, the performances generated an ecstatic reaction from the Salzburg audiences, and the recording captures the excitement of the experience. The soloists, orchestra, and chorus perform with a vibrant energy that propels the drama with unusual urgency. Netrebko sings flawlessly with a sumptuous, velvety legato, and she is completely engaging as Violetta, beautifully capturing her high spirits, her inner strength, and her physical frailty. "Ah, fors'è lui" is particularly moving. Villazón is a fine foil for her, with a dark, burnished tenor and an impetuous, sometimes explosive temperament. Hampson's Germont is vocally superb, but he seems somewhat disengaged and doesn't bring the same level of emotional investment to his role as the romantic leads. Carlo Rizzi leads the Vienna Philharmonic with meticulous attention to the details of Verdi's scoring, giving the music a punchiness that tends to get smoothed out in many performances. The orchestral balances are exceptionally fine, so that each scene is distinctively shaded and colored. Deutsche Grammophon's sound is wonderfully clear and present, capturing the positive elements of a live performance without the distractions or limitations that frequently mar live recordings.

Beautiful voice, wonderful expression = Great Soprano of our time!
I recently saw her performance at Met (in Rigoletto) and she was amazing! Seems like many reviewers complain about her acting part but really...if you see the whole performance and fully understand about the scene and words, you will be impressed. To tell you the truth, I was not a big fan of her when I first listened her complete "La Traviata" CDs, but soon I realized it is great version of Traviata. I can't wait to see whole performance DVD! BRAVA! (Oh and by the way, Rolando Villazon is unbelievable LEGENDARY tenor of our time!)
You people don't get it.
Obviously you unsophisticated lemmings don't understand that you can't expect her to be a movie star. Not because she can't act, because frankly, she is a phenominal actor. You can't be the most sought after soprano in the world right now and NOT be. It is a completely different kind of acting and singing to your full ability while trying to act with a camera down your throat, is quite a bit harder than you think. I would like to see you do it. Unless you are Joan Sutherland, none of you are in a position to be criticizing her. Stick to your own thing.
I love this CD. I love the DVD. Anna Netrebko has a beautiful, stunning voice. This is my favorite CD. It's a great recording of Traviata, very emotional and beautiful. Rolando Villazon is great too, his "O Mio Rimorso" sounds great. In the DVD, I think it's very well acted. You have to see more than a tiny video clip to appreciate it.
