About

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was a member of the young Russian school formed by “The Mighty Handful” along with Balakirev, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky, and Alexander Borodin. Although his songs are not very frequently performed, his songs with piano accompaniment or, as the master himself termed them, the Romances, are a substantial element of his overall oeuvre. Rimsky-Korsakov’s song artistry is first and foremost a musical one. In the miniaturistic formats of his romances he fundamentally endeavored to interrelate the poetic statement and vocal interpretation. He was never interested in illuminating the darkest and innermost corners of psychic labyrinths with the light of his artistry. The mezzo-soprano Marina Prudenskaya, who was born in St Petersburg, interprets our selection of his songs in the original Russian.

The booklet includes German and English translations of the song texts.
