The brief but beautiful songs of Tchaikovsky have the melodic richness and emotional power of his larger-scaled orchestral works and operas, while the chansons of Fauré, Saint-Saëns, and other French composers delight with their subtle charms. Andrei Bondarenko—a singer with “an astonishingly beautiful voice” (The Guardian) and winner of the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Song Prize—performs these songs, plus works by Ibert and Ravel inspired by Don Quixote and written for the legendary Russian bass Feodor Chaliapin.
