More about this title
Songs Volume 2 - 20 Romances
Continuing our tradition of publishing Russian music, we are proud to present two invaluable volumes of Tchaikovsky's songs. These have been specially compiled by the distinguished piano accompanist Roger Vignoles, who has created new and idiomatic English singing translations to help both performers and students.
These can be used for performance, or as a means to understanding the Russian poetry.
Original Cyrillic texts are included to help non-Russian speakers wishing to perform the songs in the original language, transliterations are provided in an Appendix.
Each volume contains twenty songs - two superb selections, showing many varied facets of Tchaikovsky's writing - from sorrow to happiness, love and comedy. Singers and pianists are sure to welcome these volumes, which will open the world of the Russian Romance to many non-Russian musicians.
Roger Vignoles is one of the best-known of today's piano accompanists, partner to an impressive list of international singes, including: Elisabeth Soederstroem, Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Thomas Allen, Thomas Hampson, Sarah Walker, Brigitte Fassbaender, Elena Obraztosova, Kathleen Battle, Sylvia McNair and many others.
An accomplished linguist and coach, he has given masterclasses for singers and their accompanists in Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, the USA, Australia and the Far East.
