Not only Carmen and Azucena – the celebrated Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili explores the world of song on “Élégie” – in five languages with compositions by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Duparc and the Georgian Otar Taktakishvili, among others

Anita Rachvelishvili has been causing a sensation on major opera stages around the world since her sensational debut at La Scala in Milan: “Without question, the best mezzo-soprano in the world today for Verdi,” says Italian conductor Riccardo Muti. Her first album on Sony Classical, which bore only her name, was highly acclaimed worldwide and won an annual prize from the German Record Critics in Germany

Her new album shows her with her wonderful voice from a more intimate side. With “Élégie”, Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili explores the world of song: “I love this repertoire,” says Rachvelishvili. “You can find here other colors and ways to express feelings just with the voice.”

On her new album, she sings in five languages, presenting five different musical traditions, underscoring her enormous stylistic range. Rachvelishvili sings songs here in Russian, Georgian, Italian, French and Spanish, and would also like to introduce a Georgian composer who is little known in the West: Otar Taktakishvili. The song “Sun of Haying Month” comes from him

The album, on which Rachvelishvili is accompanied by pianist Vincenzo Scalera, opens with one of the most famous Russian songs, Tchaikovsky’s “Only Who Knows Longing,” followed by two more songs from Tchaikovsky’s Six Romances (“Night” and “Reconciliation”). Rachvelishvili’s voice is also ideally suited to Sergei Rachmaninoff’s five songs from the Six Romances Op. 8 (“Child, You Are as Beautiful as a Flower”, “I Fell in Love”) and Op. 4 (Don’t Sing to Me, My Beauty – an Elegy to the Beauty of Georgia), as well as from the 12 Romances Op. 21 (“How Beautiful It Is Here”) and Op 14 (“Oh, Don’t Mourn Me)

With songs by Henri Duparc (1848-1933: “Élégie”, “Chanson triste”,” La vie Antérieure”) and Enrico Tosti (1846-1916, “Non t’amo più!”, “Ideale” and “Tristezza”) Rachvelishvili presents two more of her favourite composers. Duparc’s songs have long been among her favorites, as she finds that French songs are good for the voice. And with Tosti, she feels transported back to her student years in Milan

The album concludes with “7 Spanish Folk Songs” by Manuel de Falla, a spirited round of songs, fascinatingly sung by Anita Rachvelishvili.
