Notes and Editorial Reviews

The songs on this album are not as well known as other works by these three composers, but this more intimate form of expression often goes straight to the heart and soul of their work. Tchaikovsky wrote songs throughout his life, and it is easy to find autobiographical parallels in his chosen themes of love and longing. Rimsky-Korsakov’s songs are characterized by tender lyricism, while Rachmaninov’s wordless Vocalise has become one of his most famous melodies. Margarita Gritskova was born in 1987 in St. Petersburg. She is a prizewinner of the Luciano Pavarotti Competition in Modena, and the Concurso Internacional de Canto ‘Villa de Colmenar Viejo’ in 2010. She has performed in Carmen under the direction of Mariss Jansons in St. Read more Petersburg, and appeared at world renowned festivals across the globe. Read less
