Reviews

'Joan Rodgers's live recitals of Russian song, and her earlier Tchaikovsky album for Hyperion, set up huge expectations for this disc of four song cycles which have become classics of the repertoire. And it does not disappoint' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This is Hyperion at its best: a pair of fine artists exploring a less-than-familiar corner of the repertoire. More please!' (International Record Review)

'This wonderful collection of four of the greatest song cycles and sets to Russian texts finds Rodgers in compelling form. The voice remains fresh and pristine enough for the childlike tones of the famous Musorgsky set, and now commands the richness of tone colour to do justice to Britten's dark Pushkin settings. Vignoles is a worthy partner in this outstanding enterprise' (The Sunday Times)

'Roger Vignoles provides sensitive accompaniments, with Hyperion supplying a realistic sound environment that avoids over-reverberance. Decent liner notes are furnished by Jonathan Powell, and English texts alongside transliterated Russian ones for all songs. Highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
