Russian Romantic Songs

Romance as sung in this collection of songs does not refer to the passion of new love, but rather the sadness of separation from a true love. With the Russian landscape as the lyrical backdrop, Yulya sings of nature’s obstacles to being united with a lover—the expanse of the sea, the height of the mountain, the depth of the flooding river. A gentle guitar and a folksy accordion, along with the Russian balalaika, accompany Yulya’s passionate portrayal of longing. This recording includes an English translation of the original Russian lyrics.
