Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden

It is the first time that conductor Edo de Waart and stage director Robert Wilson give a version of Puccini's Madame Butterfly: the result is a most original performance. When Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton, Lieutenant in the United States Navy, meets the 15 year-old geisha Cio-Cio San (Mrs Butterfly in Japanese), he finds her so exotically lovely that he marries her, and the two lovers quickly have a baby. But the American man only stays for a short time in Nagasaki, and finally goes back to the United States, where he marries another young woman, American this time. Years later, Pinkerton comes back to Japan with his new wife to take his son back to America so he can receive an education. The long awaited come back of Pinkerton in Japan brings desolation to Mrs Butterfly who finally commits suicide. Robert Wilson aimed at directing a refined version, outside of the all the "fake Japanese, cherry blossom and all of the traditional clichés on Japanese culture." The aesthetics of this production and the acting are largely inspired by Butoh, a Japanese form of dance characterized by slow motion, poetry and minimalism. This staging is uncommon and sometimes challenging for the singers and the conductor, who share this experience with us in this documentary
