Romances by Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninov; instrumental music by Glière and Rimsky-Korsakov

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was not only a predominant figure in 19th-century Russian opera, he also wrote a treasure trove of songs and romances – a genre that arose as a counterpoint to the 18th-century French romance and in which Glinka and Rachmaninov also excelled.

The Russian mezzosoprano Victoria Yarovaya, who in Sadko sings the role of Ljoebava (Sadko’s wife), presents a fine selection of romances by Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninov, accompanied on the piano by Jeanne-Minette Cilliers. They enter into dialogue with Aykut Dursen, first double bass player for the Symphony Orchestra of the Flemish Opera, who will provide us with folk inspired Russian intermezzi.
