Marina Ushchapovskaya, Rolf Ege & Lars David Kellner
© 2010, Mini CD
Sergei Rachmaninov composed more than 80 songs, many of which are still unknown in the German-speaking part of Europe. The mezzo-soprano Marina Ushchapovskaya and Lars David Kellner perform six of Rachmaninoff’s so-called »Romances«. The speaker Rolf Ege recites the corresponding rhymed song lyrics in German adaptation to directly enhance the implied themes like yearning, despair and love for the awareness of the listener.
Recorded at Kleines Theater Haar.
