Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the era of Romanticism, there is hardly any other Russian composer who is more associated with western European aesthetics than Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky, a composer known for his symphonic and instrumental works, ballets, and operas. Although several of his more than a hundred songs are quite famous, they are rarely performed in vocal recitals. Bulgarian musicians Nadia Krasteva, mezzo soprano, and Dora Deliyska, piano exemplify Tchaikovsky’s creativity and personal life with selected songs featured on their new album. Not least due to their own Slavic descent, the artists succeed brilliantly in portraying such powerful emotions of melancholy, aspiration and sorrow, but also reconciliation and joy.
