Netrebko with Russian
Finally the secret about the Mannheimer evening with Anna Netrebko is disclosed. For a long time we were wondering what the south russian will sing on 12th August at the Rosengarten, cause it was said from the beginning she's coming without orchestra and "only" with piano accompaniment to the Liederabend. Such evenings are rare and very intimate. Now has the organiser BB Promotion announced the programme. Netrebko will sing a russian programme: 11 Lieder by Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow and 9 by Peter Iljitsch Tchaikovsky. Her piano partner is the moscow born Elena Bashkirova, who got an international reputation as chamber music partner and soloist.
