Product Description


VAI Audio is proud to present one of the most exciting new voices of our time in her CD recital debut. The young Russian mezzo-soprano Irina Mishura brings an extraordinary pallet of vocal colors and emotional expression to this program of songs by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich. Included is the premiere recording of Shostakovich’s hauntingly beautiful and emotionally searing song cycle Six Poems of Marina Tsvetayeva, op. 143, in its original scoring for voice and piano. Lawrence B. Johnson of the Detroit News has written of Mishura, "Her glorious sound [is] fluid and... solidly focussed over a stunning range. [She] displayed not just the vocal prowess but also the intelligence that distinguishes great singers." The rising young Russian conductor Valéry Ryvkin accompanies at the piano. Booklet includes complete Russian texts (in transliteration) and English translations.
