  1. What's that ???
    I can't believe that there will be only the Rimsky-Korsakov songs on the cd... it takes merely 30 min and the full programm with Tchaikovsky' songs lasts more or less an hour : they could easily be on the whole cd ( by the way those songs were for some of them the best part of the evening).
    What's in the head of DG programmers ???
    I hope that it's only their website that is incomplete... and I really hope that the definitive cd will contain both all Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky songs that were performed. Without that it would be a great shame !

  2. This is the CD that was initially announced in August and later on removed from the DG website. Already then it was announced that it would contains the Rimsky-Korsakov songs plus some Tchaikovsky songs, which now seems that they would be included in the limited edition. I was also surprised then when I read that they would not release the full recital... amazing! I think that the only hope would be if they include the full 2nd part of the programme, devoted to Tchaikovsky, in the limited edition... but it seems that this will not be the case looking the way it's announced...

  3. Well,
    I can't understand that ! It's a totally silly decision from DG in that case !
    Or maybe they will released a third cd with only Tchaikovski to make more money.
    It makes me furious.
    The whole "russian songs evening" can fill a cd !
    How can they publish a cd with only 30 min of music !!! A real shame.

  4. We wrote a request to DG asking them to release the full program of the Salzburg recital -- Rimski-Korsakov and Tcahikovsky, not only Rimski-Korsakov -- in her upcoming new CD!

    If you like to support our request, please visit Anna's official Facebook site and show your support:


  5. Good news!!! DH has published the track list... and the track list include the FULL programme of the Liederabend INCLUDING even the two encores!!! Fantastic!!!

    It is still not clear for me why they announce using capital letters the name of RIMSKY-KORSAKOV on the top, while the name of Tchaikovsky is included below in small letters... and not clear if the + Tchaikovsky: Lieder . songs, refer to the limited hardcover edition or to both of them, as it seems now according to the track list.

    In any case we will get the recital in full including the encores!!!

  6. Great news !!!
    (Do you think that the message on Anna's FB page was received, explaining why they updated DG's website ?

    In anycase, I'm really happy that the full evening will be released.

    By the way, thank's again Carlos for your wonderful blog and all the news.

  7. Thanks for the updates.

    I will definitely get this, it is just the right repertoire for her. I hope we will see her in more Russian stuff, a complete Eugene Onegin with Beczala and Kwiechen (or even Mariinsky singer Alexei Markov) would be an exciting release.


  8. This album will be one of the best of Anna... a wonderful complement to her Russian Album. She was fantastic inthis recital and it will be so nice to have the brand new album just in time to see her in Berlin singing exactly the same program...

    Yes, a recording of Eugene Onegin and War and Peace with stellar cast is a must. She talked about the project to make a recording of War and Peace with Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Valery Gergiev, but always problems in their schedules... Eugene Onegin was planned for the 2012-2013 season at the Met. Mariusz Kwiecien, Alexei Markov or Dmitri Hvorostovsky are very good and they would be great partners... I would prefer Dmitri... Hopefully we will have Eugene Onegin at the Met with Anna and they will release a DVD...
