This was a great disappointment. The collection felt like it had been recorded for the pleasure of the artist not the listening public. The title says it all.

As always, exceptionally beautiful 27 May 2010
By Wickie L. Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After putting out the standard Puccini/Verdi arias albums, Netrebko has released two stunning albums of Russian songs. Yes, she has a language advantage over the majority of singers of this repertoire, but the nuances and beauty of her voice shine through, as no other soprano. It is also a treat to hear these songs, adequately accompanied by Barenboim, because they are not recorded that often. Since childhood I have been a sucker for 'Songs My Mother Taught Me' (Dvorak), and it brought tears to my eyes to hear her sing it. She is an exceptional artist in all respects.

Anna Netrebko, Recitalist 27 Dec. 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those who have treasured the operatic performances of the very beautiful and talented Anna Netrebko it may come as a surprise that she can be equally convincing in the more demanding role of lieder singer. This recording is taken from a live performance with Netrebko and Daniel Barenboim at the 2009 Salzburg Festival and while that may alter the acoustical soundness of this outing it also provides an immediacy with the audience. The program is Russian and what a pleasure to hear the songs of Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov sung by a Russian soprano who not only understands the composers' concepts but also is able to give the subtleties of the Russian language their due.

Netrebko is in excellent voice here, rising with arching lines, able to extend a long phrase with a seemingly endless supply of breath, and giving her usual quality pianissimo appreciation to phrases others might just sing straight. There is a sameness to the sound of the works and that is likely due to the order in which they are performed. The only time that both Netrebko and Barenboim disappoint is in the lack of Straussian sound so important to the last song 'Cäcilie'. But that is a minor flaw in an otherwise beautiful recital.

Your own private recital 6 Jan. 2011
By R. KEMP - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If I close my eyes, this recording makes me feel like I'm in a walnut-paneled and candle-lit drawing room with darkly varnished portraits looking down, and Anna and Daniel are performing twelve feet away. They are magnificent, and I'm here with a small party of friends swirling 30-year-old brandies and wearing our dinner tuxes with our ladies in gowns.
Perhaps I can find some small quibbles; there is a bit too much echo in the room, and the applause gets a little loud at times. For gosh sakes there is even an odd thundering racket at the end of track 21 like the audience is actually STOMPING on the oak floors like riff-raff at the burlesque! Couldn't that have been edited out? Further, I do understand the reviewer who didn't think Barenboim was spot on, because the piano sometimes overpowers, but rarely, and if you listen closely he seems to be holding back most of the time. It's just that the low end of a 9-foot concert grand is hard to muzzle, and it doesn't always pair with the mellifluous voice of an angel like Netrebko in the way a string section does.
But that isn't why you will buy this recording. You will buy it for the palpable magic of feeling that one of the greatest voices on Earth is only twelve feet away, and you will wish she would sing forever.

Excellent performances; slightly annoying live sound 25 April 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Russian soprano Anna Netrebko is one of today's reigning stars of the opera world. She certainly must be doing something right because this current album of largely Russian songs, In the Still of Night, marks something like the twentieth-plus compact disc the folks at DG have released of her singing. Not only that, she has celebrated pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim accompanying her.

What's even more, DG have given the album a most royal treatment. The single disc comes housed not in an ordinary jewel box but in a special, superdeluxe CD book, with a fifty-odd page insert bound between hard covers, the disc itself sliding into a stiff cardboard sleeve attached near the rear of the case. The package is the size and thickness of a regular CD jewel box but is much more elaborate. And more costly.

DG recorded the recital live at the Salzburg Festival in August, 2009, where by all accounts Netrebko and Barenboim were smash hits. The audio engineers place the piano and voice somewhat to the left of center, which may help replicate the live experience but seems a little disconcerting for home listening. The voice rings true, with little or no edge or hardness, while the piano exhibits a pleasantly resonant bloom, also representative of a live performance. The audience, in the meantime, behaves itself, remaining fairly quiet during the songs (indeed, seemingly giving the performers their rapt attention), although their applause after every piece becomes a bit disruptive and annoying after a while.

Perfect! 21 May 2010
By Kari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you do not yet know Anna Netrebko, this disc is a great place to start. A live recital, with only a piano to accompany her, it is easy to focus on and enjoy her divine voice. It does not get better than this. The only complaint I have is the price of this single-disc release. Well, with the Euro in decline, maybe the price of this import will come down in the next few weeks. The main reason for posting this message is to highlight a new rising star for your attention. If you enjoy Anna Netrebko, you won't want to miss Ms. Ailyn Perez. The Violeta of this decade, based on what I heard recently at the Staatsoper's La Traviata.
