Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents an album of classical Russian romances performed by Elena Zaremba. One of the best Russian mezzo-sopranos of her generation, the singer began her career at the Bolshoi Theatre of the USSR in the mid-1980s. She conquered the world of opera performing at some of the best theatre and festival venues with Russian, Italian, French and German repertoire and taking part in productions with prominent soloists and conductors. Elena Zaremba regularly performs in Russia again since 2010 singing in new productions of the Bolshoi Theatre. The album covers a hundred years of the evolution of Russian romance - Glinka, Dargomyzhsky, Rubinstein, Cui, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Medtner. This programme was born through collaboration with Antonina Kadobnova, a remarkable pianist and concertmaster. A prize-winner of international competitions, she is very active as both a solo performer and accompanist performing with well-known and young vocalists. These recordings of Russian romances were made by Elena Zaremba and Antonina Kadobnova in 2011.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is a terrific program of Russian favorites. Zaremba and Kadobnova are a great pair; Zaremba's voice is even, full, and golden; andKadobnova's playing is clear and supportive, dramatic in all the right places. The program includes pieces by well known Russian composers and a few who might be unfamiliar, including Alexander Dargomyzhsky, whose 'Night's Soft Breeze' is more opera scene than art song. Cesar Cui's short and lyrical 'Statue atTsarkoye Selo' is a nice contrast.
