Notes & Reviews:

"...Leiferkus is, of course, one of today's eminent operatic baritones, noted for his dramatic talent as well as his rich, powerful voice. That power is put to good use here, for example in the hair-raising crescendo at the end of 'Spring Torrents' and the exultant ending of 'Christ is risen'...Transliterated text and translations. I know of no finer disc of Rachmaninov songs." -American Record Guide
