Few Russian composers could resist setting verses by Alexander Pushkin, and his influence on the development of Russian music was indirectly as great as his influence on literature. This collection demonstrates the compelling power of the poet, and the beauty of the music he inspired. It is performed by Joan Rodgers, herself an acknowledged master of Russian repertoire, and Malcolm Martineau.

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2009

****

“To the gentlest songs… Rodgers brings as much gracefulness and subtlety as ever, and timbre as exquisitely fragrant and fine-grained.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2009

“A treasure trove of Russian song that will reward repeated listening for years.”
