A VOICE THAT WOULD MAKE A BADGER PURR
She sounds better with each album. Her recording of "Pie Jesu" is one of the best I have ever heard. Absolutely sublime.
Anna's voice has a black, velvety goldness to it, and I'm convinced that she could burp the alphabet and make it beautiful. She knows how to sing simply, without over-indulgence, like a princess. However, I can't help but agree that there is something unsettling about her vibrato and breath control. She sounds much older in some tracks, almost like a weak, worn-out Wagnerian. I seriously doubt the longevity of her voice, and the mic placement seems TOO close. There's some definite wobble to her voice, and not only in high registers.
Netrebko's severe lack of breath control contributes largely to her absolute lack of vocal talent. It's amazing that anyone allows this woman to sing anything. If you want to hear a real coloratura soprano, find a recording of Edita Grubernova.
