Delos is excited to add Tchaikovsky Duets to its unique partnership with Marina Domashenko, Olga Guryakova and Maestro Constantine Orbelian! Both singers have graced the Metropolitan stage: Domashenko in Saint-Saens’ Samson et Dalila and Guryakova in Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa. This release of Russian masterpieces perfectly reflects the commitment to vocal excellence that Delos is known for. Opera arias and duets from Eugene Onegin, The Maid of Orleans, Pique Dame, Mazeppa and Romeo and Juliet make this important release a must have for all fans of opera, as do the little-known and greatly sought after offerings from Oprichnik and the Opus 46 Duets. With song lyrics from Pushkin, Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky himself, Tchaikovsky Duets is a showcase for the beauty and emotional power of music and poetry. Tchaikovsky Duets serves as a perfect introduction to the lush romanticism of the composer and the breathtaking talents of the artists involved. Not to be missed on this special release are the contributions from the world-renowned Philharmonia of Russia and the Spiritual Revival Choir of Russia.
