On her fourth solo album for Deutsche Grammophon, Anna Netrebko gives full rein to her lively sense of fun, glamour and joie de vivre. In the tradition of such opera luminaries as Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Joan Sutherland and Plácido Domingo, all of whom produced acclaimed recitals of lighter music, Anna has put together this sparkling compilation of operetta classics, seductive salon songs and other charming melodies. Souvenirs is also the singer's most intimate recording yet, for - as the title suggests - each of the tracks holds a cherished place in Anna's heart, and many of them come with a special memory.

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
