Description: Tchaikovsky wrote over 100 Romances, a sequence of diaries of the soul that embrace moods from euphoria to despair. They were unusually important to him, and he, or his editors, commissioned piano transcriptions by eminent musicians such as Laub and others, all of which were revised by Tchaikovsky. Of these 19 poetic and melodically beautiful songs, 15 are here recorded for the first time (that goes for the fantasies by Voss and Frühling too). Julia Severus (piano).
