Reviews

'A treasure trove of Russian song that will reward repeated listening for years … delivered by a first-rate soprano already with a distinguished track record in the repertoire, themed on the verse of Russia's most favourite poet, is a more than attractive prospect' (Gramophone)

'No non-Russian singer has done more for Russian song than Rodgers … Martineau is an exemplary partner in an attractive programme that fans of Russian song and Rodgers will not want to miss' (The Sunday Times)
