Glinka’s romances and songs reflect the composer’s own feelings in respect of contemporary events and his life. The recording of this recital by the Russian-born German soprano Julia Sukmánova is her way of immersing listeners in the special world of the Russian musical soul. Nowadays, it is rare to hear a recital made up entirely of songs by Glinka. After all, in our day and age there are few artists who aspire to such intimacy and such refined vocal prowess. Drawing on incredible depth of expression to portray the passion and the versatility of a voice that knows no bounds — be it “I watch Inesilla” for tenor or “The Night-time Review”, a classic of the bass repertoire — the soprano exhibits great passion and faithfulness to the text, thus captivating listeners both within and outside the closed circle of Glinka connoisseurs. The delicate German rendition of the song “Do not tempt me...” shows that the composer’s legacy transcends linguistic and national boundaries, touching the hearts of all who listen to it. He is a composer who gives pause for thought and exudes stillness.
