'Russian composers have set many English poems to music, and here we have some of the best' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Even more impressive than their two previous collections … a CD that merits a very strong recommendation' (Fanfare, USA)
I am here, Inezilla was written in 1834, which was in many ways a critical year for him. His father having died, Glinka left Berlin and his musical studies there, returning to Russia where he began work on his opera A Life for the Tsar, which was to bring him overnight success. This popular romance is an exuberant serenade set in the romantic Spain that meant so much to the composer.
