Notes and Editorial Reviews

Petr Lescenco was born in the Ukraine into a family of farmers. His parents had no permanent employment and were forced to move from town to town to look for work. In 1910 his father found work near Bucharest and was finally able to offer his family a permanent home in the Romanian capital. It was here that the young Petr enjoyed his first artistic success and it was from here that his fame started to spread around the world. Nature had bestowed on him a baritone voice of extraordinary beauty and velvety texture and he knew perfectly well how to use it correctly. He also played the guitar excellently and was a very good dancer. He sang exclusively in Russian and Ukrainian. Those who listened to him were captured by the ease of his singing Read more and his popular sentiment; the lyricism and the emotional depth of his performances enthralled his public. He put his soul into every song rendering each in a totally credible way and creating a very special atmosphere which is captured beautifully in this wonderful historic Preiser CD. Read less
