Notes & Reviews:

"Rejected love is a favorite theme of Rachmaninov's, and it is explored in an almost clinical thoroughness. Gradually--the songs are performed in chronological order--the piano takes a more commanding part, until is such outbursts as "Spring torrents", sung with glorious fervour by Joan Rodgers, it almost dominates." ***** -Classic CD
