Iain Burnside‘s latest CD, a complete collection of Rachmaninov Songs, has garnered some wonderful reviews.
Recorded with sopranos Evelina Dobračeva and Ekaterina Siurina, mezzo soprano Justina Gringyte, tenor Daniil Shtoda, baritones Andrei Bondarenko and Rodion Pogossov, and bass Alexander Vinogradov, this three-CD set on Delphian is the first complete recording for 20 years of the composer’s published song output.
On BBC Radio 3’s CD Review on Saturday 29 March, the CD was described as ‘completely fantastic’. The CD was Album of the Week in The Sunday Times on 23 March, and Rupert Christiansen gave the disc a five-star review in The Telegraph.
CD Review is available on the BBC website for five more days. Please follow this link for a comprehensive introduction to the set as well as select songs performed by Ekaterina Siurina, Daniil Shtoda, Andrei Bondarenko and Alexander Vinogradov.
