Teodor Currentzis - Fragments Part I - "Traviata" - Act III: Preludio, scena e aria

From Opera Wire:

Sony Classical has launched “Fragments,” a series of iconic opera scenes, recorded in Saint Petersburg, under the direction of Teodor Currentzis. The first in this series features a segment from Verdi’s “La Traviata.”

Currentzis recorded the Prelude to Act three and Violetta’s famous Aria “Addio del Passato Bei Sogni Ridenti” alongside Russian soprano Nadezhda Pavlova.

The parts of Annina and Doctor Grenville are performed Yulia Sayfulmulyukova and Víktor Shapovalov, both soloists of the musicAeterna choir.

“This is a project that I’ve been dreaming about for a long time […] to make opera when there is plenty of time to make exactly the music I want to; to only care about the true essence of the piece and not about how to make it hectically in three days,” the conductor stated in an official press release. “So, we grabbed the opportunity and decided to creatively use this difficult period of time that we are all going through […] while opera houses are closed […] This seemed to be the right time to reconsider the approach of making music in a manner that would allow us to finally reach the inner layer of the musical text. This project will be a compilation of fragments, scenes from different operas. We aim to restore the wasted beauty, the abundance of flavors and colors that have been sacrificed on the altar of the mainstream, and the music industry.”
