About

The songs on this album are not as well known as other works by these three composers, but this more intimate form of expression often goes straight to the heart and soul of their work. Tchaikovsky wrote songs throughout his life, and it is easy to find autobiographical parallels in his chosen themes of love and longing. Rimsky-Korsakovís songs are characterised by tender lyricism, while Rachmaninovís wordless Vocalise has become one of his most famous melodies.
