Filled with beauty, passion and drama, these Russian songs and arias go straight to the heart of the nation’s 19th-century musical soul. Rachmaninov’s popular Vocalise is part of a line which includes songs of love and sadness such as Tchaikovsky’s Op 47, two of which are included here, while yearning melodies, high drama and vivid orchestral colour are to be found in the operas of all three featured composers. Montserrat Caballé has described soprano Dinara Alieva’s rare talent as ‘the gift of Heaven’.


   




Review By Göran Forsling,MusicWeb International,July 2013

Judging by this debut recital [Alieva] seems well equipped to pursue a glorious career for years to come. Rachmaninov’s ubiquitous Vocalise is as good a test as any song or aria when it comes to voice production, beauty of tone, legato and technical accomplishment. She has it all, including a fine trill. …she certainly doesn’t lack dramatic intensity.

Two arias from Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar’s Bride follow next. This is R-K at his very best: melodious and with admirable orchestral colours. In particular the aria from act IV is truly lovely and it is difficult to imagine it better sung.
