Зимние фантазии

There are no translations available.



У зим бывают имена.
Одна из них звалась Наталья.
И было в ней мерцанье, тайна,
И холод, и голубизна.

Еленою звалась зима,
И Марфою, и Катериной.
И я порою зимней, длинной
Влюблялся и сходил с ума.

И были дни, и падал снег,
Как теплый пух зимы туманной.
А эту зиму звали Анной,
Она была прекрасней всех.

Anna Netrebko in Sochi
Saturday, 08 February 2014 08:05

Before offering their "hot" note to readers , I want to warn you that it does not report on the performance of Anna Netrebko in Sochi. It's just not in time still cool emotions from what you see from the next , but an unusual meeting with Anna. Them, their emotions , I want to share with your readers , with fans Russian miracle - Anna Netrebko .


It is finished ! Anna Netrebko has taken part in a bright, memorable performance - the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi!
From the old days as Anna already announced its decision to participate in the historic event , the thought of it did not come out of my head . I fought in two senses : one - a sense of pride for Anna , a foretaste of the pleasure of seeing her at the global sports forum and realize that the whole world will see Anna . Other - this feeling of anxiety for what Anna will be singing at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics , and, therefore , in the cold, in the cold wind . In front of my eyes involuntarily picture : Anna in a fur coat with a scarf knotted around his neck , in a fur cap sings , her voice is carried over frozen Sochi valley flies in February crackling frost. As it was not worried about Anna , her health , for her unique , fabulous voice !
And welcome - happened! Was a miracle ! Was in the climax of the brightest holiday , when Russian President declared open the Olympics , and the whole world heard the Olympic hymn - a hymn performed by Anna Netrebko !

At this point, all my worries flew away ! On a night in the unique atmosphere of the holiday could not be thought of anxiety ! At the epicenter of world events on the platform at the rising of the Olympic flag and sang the national anthem was Anna Netrebko Olympics . Here, on the windswept sports arena , heat clad among the public, she was not wearing any coat or warm scarf. The whole world saw Anna Netrebko in the lung , if not air light green dress with bare shoulders and arms . Global megastar not just challenged the February cold, she simply did not notice a king , did not pay any attention to him .
Sochi and the celebration was held , and concern for Anna will certainly return . Waiting for her extraordinarily rich program for the entire upcoming season ! And really do not want to the Sochi heroic performance had a negative impact on her health and voice. Because very soon she will be London, then Vienna , Munich, Baden-Baden , Salzburg ...
Presentation by Anna in Sochi had another result - for me personally.
Some time ago we with my good friend made a bet - whether Anna will arrive in Sochi , will sing at the celebration of the Olympics . My friend did not doubt that certainly will , I put that Anna did not come . At stake was a lunch in a restaurant after a performance featuring Anna .
Now I can admit it - for me it was a dispute without losing ! I won anyway. Anna will not arrive in Sochi - and I won the bet ! And do not come - I lost the argument , but it won a unique , unforgettable experience - presentation by Anna at the Olympics ! A restaurant lunch with a good friend - he will be held in any case . Often have such a bet ! If you argue that the only way!
And readers who have not seen on TV BROADCAST vacation in Sochi Olympics , I recommend to see it in writing . The holiday itself was bright, colorful, unforgettable spectacle. And in his crown , adorned with a variety of gemstones , diamond was our beautiful Anna !

The soprano's spokesmen issued a statement Monday saying her relationship with the bass-baritone had ended "amicably" after six years.
Netrebko cites "demanding schedules and the resulting constant time apart" as the reason for the split.
The pair have a 5-year-old son Tiago. It's not clear whether Netrebko and Schrott ever married.
She says "we treasure the time we spent together and of course remain devoted parents to our son." She adds: "We are also committed to honoring our scheduled joint professional appearances."

It is incomprehensible and very sad. It looks like the December concert in Moscow Anna really was massive fraud.

It seems that in this regard in Moscow brewing scandal . Today, in some solid information agencies and print a message saying that the announced Moscow concert of Anna and selling tickets to it is a common scam .
We offer our readers a few of today's materials in this regard and hope that some of them will not be affected , if in fact the concert was released unforgivable fraud.

In August 2013th ...
Monday, 28 October 2013 14:03

From the Editor:
Time flies at supersonic airliner . Two months later, the 2013th will be consigned to history, including the history of the career and work of Anna Netrebko. In our opinion, this year for Anna undoubtedly become extremely successful.
We want to go back a few months ago, in August, the Salzburg Festival, where Anna has acted in the title role of Verdi's opera "Joan of Arc" . Her performance of the correspondents of several publications have called triumphant, at the same time putting on their pages interview with Anna Netrebko.
We offer excerpts from two such interviews. The first took Anna correspondent Austrian edition "Kurier" Peter Jarolin, author of the second in the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" has become a long-time observer of creativity Anna Netrebko Maria Babalova .
Excerpts from an interview with both our combined into a single material in any order.

M.B. - In Austria, you're just a national favorite ...

Anna Netrebko: Yes. Throughout my huge photos. People recognize me in the streets, approach, asking for his autograph and take a picture together. A tourist in Vienna is constantly walking around my house, and tour guides to show my windows. Well, what can I do? Let the show. If I had any pop star, or worse, O Lord, forgive me, a movie star ... That they have the unenviable life completely - they can not step quietly and do. And I'm in Vienna with the child walk quietly, I will not be lacking. In Salzburg, of course, difficult to walk the streets. People, if they consider that the expression you have dark, tomorrow they necessarily write that you have a crisis or anything else pohlesche. And now I have a whole year of some wild debuts. Responsible all things, and I'm nervous.

M.B. - Last year, also in Salzburg, on the other festival, you have to execute the work of Rodion Shchedrin's "Cleopatra and the snake." But neither then nor later did not happen...

Anna Netrebko:
  Be sure to happen! It is true. I do not like to lie. I taught him completely honest. But back to my bronchitis. I had five days in the five days I had to imbibe a work in his voice. I could not. And this is the product of the complex, for a very high voice. Recently spoke with Mr. Shchedrin . I did not want to leave this topic. I want to finish my studies and to write this piece. I was so happy to find out that it was written for me to work. And sincerely hoped that it will be the first performer.
None of composers dedicated their works to me. One day I just wrote down some modern songs, a typical cross-over , for a cruise for a lot of money a few years ago. With the categorical condition that it does not appear anywhere else except this cruise. So that this experience does not count.

M.B. - This season for you was marked by a brilliant debut in the role of Tatiana in Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin". Next year you will debut as Verdi's Lady Macbeth . What a way for you harder ?

Anna Netrebko: I'm an actress. I'm interested in those images where there is a challenge, provoking me to some discoveries in the profession. But with Lady Macbeth key to the murder scene I have not yet reached. I think I will go out to the slaughterhouse, tie the eyes and hands to rummage around in the pig carcass ... I believe this action will help the image.

M.B. - Easier for you to just act in the countries where you dote on, or where you are treated more gently?

Anna Netrebko: And where is it to me calmly?.. Although of course, the audience is different: heavy, sleeping, which is very difficult for anything to coerce . Champagne queer and disabled, and no longer care what happens on the stage. In this sense, I'd like to sing a gala concert, the audience are always clearly knows whom it came. I still had not opened his mouth, and the audience is screaming in ecstasy and the hall carries. Riga - it just was not at all something beyond. The same thing happens in St. Petersburg. And I think, and why am I in Russia often does not come?

M.B. - Do you have a home "room of glory" ?

Anna Netrebko: My dad, in Krasnodar. He is 78 years old. I periodically try to translate this room in a barn, but the pope in any ... But he was lonely, my mother died ... So I did not fight with him on the subject. I just want some of these paintings, which hang away, because a lot . And I took her. But dad hangs them back, pulling out of the barn. Tuk -tuk-tuk again hung up. Dad is very proud of me, what to do with him..
M.B. - And you've enjoyed building Mariinsky-2 , around which so much controversy erupted, and the acoustics of the new hall ?

Anna Netrebko: I liked the acoustics of the hall. But the people who were sitting on the ground, they say, is not very good. The first series of not very good "heard". And I like the building. Why does everything have to be necessarily in the same style? How many abused Eiffel Tower. As a result, it has become a symbol of Paris. In art, the architecture, the new word is always requires some challenging stereotypes. Let something be, no, not in style. I like the modern beautiful building, superbly equipped. I wish this wonderful wonderful theater performances magnificent history, which is still waiting for him in the future.

P.J. - After the concert performance of Verdi's "Joan of Arc" You waited an incredible success . Why opera was not staged ?

Anna Netrebko: "Joan of Arc" - amazing piece of music, and the party of Joan is very suitable for my voice . However, the story ... hmm ... The woman suddenly begins to hear voices, goes to war and becomes a martyr, even a saint. This is absolute nonsense! It is not necessary to set the stage for everything.

P.J. -  Your new album is called " Verdi ". You have already heard in batches of Joan of Arc, Elizabeth in "Don Carlos " , Lady Macbeth , Eleanor in "Il Trovatore" and Helena in " Sicilian Vespers ." Change your repertoire?

Anna Netrebko: In addition, this album - dedicated to one of the greatest composers in history as a year bicentennial anniversary of Verdi. But it's true: my voice has changed a lot lately. He became darker, meatier, more dramatic - it's just something with which I face the music of Verdi. I want to prove themselves in this repertoire. Now is the best time to do this. Therefore, in 2014 in Munich, I will make their debut in the party Lady Macbeth. It will be staged on the scene, I think I can bring her character, I identify with it.

P.J. - You identify yourself with Lady Macbeth?

Anna Netrebko: Of course! This is a very strong woman who knows what she wants. But, of course, is not good that they went on killing for their purposes. However, it faces the consequences - Lady Macbeth loses mind. Both on stage and in life, I like these exciting characters. As Leonora in the opera "Il Trovatore"  which I , too, will sing for the first time . Other roles of Verdi I'm not attracted, even if I can not sing them.

P.J. - Like what?

Anna Netrebko: Opera Desdemona in "Othello" I do not want her to play. How can you be so stupid woman? I would immediately split up with such a macho jealous as Othello, if I was in her place. And the point. I live on as Desdemona, and he does what he wants. Drama of Shakespeare and Boito's libretto, along with the music of Verdi - lovely. It's just not the type of woman that I would like to put into the scene. The same goes for Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Shostakovich. I would never have been stupid enough to drown because of men!

P.J. - In 2016, you will sing Elsa in a new production of Wagner's "Lohengrin" with conductor Christian Thielemann...

Anna Netrebko: Oh yes, it is an adventure ... This woman is asking for too much, but, even so, I like it. No, seriously, I've even started to prepare for "Lohengrin ," but it's not so easy: the language of Wagner must first learn and then later remember. Wagner's music is not easy for the artists . But now is the time for the party of Elsa, and another for Puccini's Manon Lescaut . For this I gave up a few batches of bel canto and Mozart. Even the Countess in the opera "The Marriage of Figaro" will not be included in my repertoire until the sound properly. I always listen to my voice.

M.B. - Why did you decide to suddenly turn to Britten , perform " War Requiem"?

Anna Netrebko: In Britten I fell in love when I was 18 years old, or rather in his music. In the Mariinsky Theatre came from the Scottish Opera production of the opera "The Turn of the Screw". As soon as I heard the first chords with me was something strange. I like "flips" ... And suddenly there was such a wonderful man like Tony Pappano - music director of the London Royal Opera House, and said that he wants to write "War Requiem" by Britten and thinks I need to sing this work, because it is written for the Russian soprano. We all know that Britten wrote it for Galina Vishnevskaya . I'm awfully like this work, it's brilliant.

P.J. - In Salzburg you surprised the audience by performing " War Requiem " Britten ...

Anna Netrebko: Yes, it's gorgeous, touching the product . I was happy to fulfill it with Antonio Pappano , Orchestra of the National Academy of Santa Cecilia and my colleagues Thomas Hampson and Ian Bostridge . Finally, in 2013, we celebrate not only the anniversary of Verdi and Wagner, as well as the birth centenary of Britten. This is an important statement. I love Britten - this music is very serious and cuts to the quick. In this repertoire I would like to work more, but I already do too many crazy things.

P.J. - Like what?

Anna Netrebko:
Daniel Barenboim persuaded me to take part in a wild project. I will release the "Four Last Songs" by Strauss on the CD. An incredible event! Me and Strauss! But Daniel said, "Anna , this is perfect for you, you can do it ." If Daniel wants this project and offered it to me, I can only agree, I totally trust him. But it is hard work: there is not more attention paid to the language and dialect, the allocation of individual words and syllables. I have been intensively studied by Strauss and I hope that I will come to him in the end.

P.J. - Maybe at the opera ?

Anna Netrebko: Why not? But for that I have to be sure that this is the right role, which I collaborate with the right people in the right ideal time for me. The music industry has become so fast that it's hard to keep up with everything. I have to sign contracts for the future, but I have no idea how my voice will be heard, whether it is suitable for a particular party .

P.J. - Hard Work ...

Anna Netrebko: Yes, not only for me, for all of us. How to be on the ball every day, because people expect it, buying tickets, and they are right? Of course, on the one hand, it is quite dangerous. Vocal and we should not rush too quickly into any adventure. This may come back to haunt anything bad. Besides, everyone needs a balance, family, friends.

P.J. - Do you have a romantic relationship with the famous bass - baritone Erwin meal, from which you have a son Tiago. Your personal life is constantly open to the public. Your every move is. How do you cope with that?

Anna Netrebko: Unfortunately, it is. Work - this is just a job and personal life - a personal life. I create my spare time. I'm happy with Thiago in Vienna at the zoo. He loves it, we look at the animals for hours, and no one we know. Because here we are just mother and son - this is for me a little, but so much happiness. I'm learning a lot from Thiago, I like it , because I'm not Anna Netrebko and her mother with the daily concerns and problems .

P.J. - You made Vienna in the center of your life ...

Anna Netrebko: The best thing is my solution! The Vienna State Opera, where in the next season I will sing Marguerite in Gounod's opera "Faust", I was at home. Vienna - absolute music, the city where I can breathe, where I can be myself - Anna Netrebko.
