V al'bome 'In an album', Op 49 No 4

author of text
Lines written in an album at Malta
translator of text

ln an album by Anton Arensky completes the settings of texts after Byron in this compilation. This 1809 rendering of Lines written in an album at Malta is by Mikhail Lermontov, whose discovery of Byron's poetry determined the main direction of his own writing. The simplicity of Arensky's musical style matches perfectly the occasional nature of the piece.
