Russian Light / Olga Peretyatko
Label: SONY CLASSICAL
PERETYATKO URAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA LISS
From Mozart to Rossini, from Bellini and Donizetti to Verdi, the soprano Olga Peretyatko has proven her versatility on the world's great opera stages and on studio recordings. Her Rossini recital was awarded an Echo Klassik Prize in 2016. Now she turns to the Russian repertoire with her fourth album for Sony Classical: Russian Light. Here the St Petersburg soprano sings opera arias by the leading Russian composers Mikhail Glinka, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Igor Stravinsky and Dmitri Shostakovich. Rounding off the programme is a selection of orchestral songs by Sergey Rachmaninoff, including the famously mellifluous Vocalise. She is accompanied on this, her first purely Russian album, by the Ural Philharmonic under the baton of Dmitry Liss.
