Russian song

Great recital of glorious Russian songs yesterday with Carris Jones, as part of a U3A study day in the Bechstein Room at the Wigmore Hall.  The directness and openness of these songs seems to speak to audiences very directly, as we found with the same programme in Somerset recently; looking forward to reprising this programme of Tchaikovsky, Medtner, Rimsky Korsakov, Borodin and Shostakovich for a repeat of this study day in the spring.
