A wonderful survey of Russian song, in new arrangements. Baritone Henk Neven is joined once again by his regular accompanist Hans Eijsackers and also by his cellist brother Jan Bastiaan Neven. Ranging from Glinka in the early 19th century to Rachmaninov in the 20th century via Borodin, Dargomyzhsky and Tchaikovsky, the programme also features a selection from Prokofiev’s ‘Chout’ in arrangements for cello & piano. A wonderfully intimate sound world is conjured by the musicians in this recital of well known and less well known songs – with love from Russia.
