The release (a very timely one in 2013, the year of 200th anniversary of Dargomyzhsky) is an author’s “new-jazz” interpretation of famous romances (gems of the lyrical part of creative heritage) of our “classic of critical realism” by the famous trio from St. Petersburg.


The album's booklet contains a detailed analysis of the famous music critic Dmitry Ukhov. Out of respect for this whole and well-done work, we decided to refrain from giving here a selection of quotes from it (as well as from any other feedback on the release). As an exception, we recommend that respected music lovers get acquainted with the review of Ukhov completely, without excuses, in the booklet of the album you purchased, his deluxe edition. "
