Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the final disc in the Naxos edition of the complete Tchaikovsky songs, which represent a little-known but highly characteristic facet of his musical personality.

“Kazarnovskaya possesses a soprano rich in timbre and powerful in projection... Tchaikovsky’s ever-ingenious melodic gift combined with Kazarnovskaya’s ever-probing and emotive singing make for a continually engaging program, one that you will no doubt play many times over.” - ClassicsToday on Volume 3 (Naxos 8555371)
