Notes and Editorial Reviews

'I find this British singer's identification with Tchaikovsky almost uncanny. Having heard countless performances ... in my native Russia, I was totally overcome by Rodgers' unaffectedness and sincerity ... her intonation is faultless, her Russian excellent. A rare treat indeed' (Vladimir Ashkenazy) 'A lovely record' (The Sunday Times) 'I find this British singer's identification with Tchaikovsky almost uncanny.
