Description
German soprano Verena Rein studied at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, as well as with Mirella Freni. Her Russian-language program begins with seven songs by Vsevolod Zaderatsky, including "Lullaby," "Mandolin," "The Lazybones and the Tomcat," and "Victoria regia," while the selections by Arthur Lourié include two lullabies, as well as "Greek Songs on Texts by Sappho," "Rosary," and "Suite Japonaise." The disc concludes with Six Romances on Words by Japanese Poets (1928–1932), Op. 21, by Dmitri Shostakovich.

"Among the strangest and most fragile pieces in the whole of Shostakovich's output, these evocative and ethereal songs … are astonishingly different from the massive and famous song-cycles of his later years. Dedicated to Nina Varzar, the composer's first wife, these pieces are at once modernistic and wistful, harsh and haunting. In their brief span they make great demands on the singer who has to capture mercurial changes mood from phrase to phase."—Gerard McBurney, Boosey & Hawkes

"A delicate person with a strong voice who can also act everything she sings."—BBC Radio

"Magnificent…. Rein has the ideal sensibility for this program of rare Russian song."—gobuzz, Paris
