At a Glance

In this program, Anna Netrebko’s rich selection of songs and arias is grouped into two broad themes. The first half focuses on the brilliance of the daytime, especially the magical time of early morning. The second half shifts to music about night—its beauties and terrors as well as its enigmatic companion, the world of dreams.

The range of Ms. Netrebko’s selections is striking, encompassing music from the 19th and 20th centuries in five languages. She explores music by three of the leading composers of her native Russia—Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Rachmaninoff—but more unexpected are her excursions into the German language for the songs of Richard Strauss. Most surprising of all is her English-language choice of “Gold is a fine thing” (also known as the “Silver Aria”) from Moore’s American classic The Ballad of Baby Doe.
