Description: Joan Rodgers offers her third all-Russian song disc (OK, one of them had some Britten) but this is the first we've offered, due to the program - "Pushkin Romances" - which offers a sampling of a wide variety of better and lesser-known composers and gives us a hundred years of Russian composers' responses to their most revered literary giant. Transliterated Russian-English texts. Joan Rodgers (soprano), Malcolm Martineau (piano).
