Star tenor Piotr Beczala presents a selection of Rachmaninoff And Tchaikovsky Romances, together with the acclaimed lied accompanist pianist Helmut Deutsch. The romance was the most popular musical genre in nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Russia, practised by professionals as well as amateurs.

Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff both enriched this genre with their lyricism and melodic invention. Elevated by Deutsch’s splendid accompaniment, Beczala delivers these songs with a great sense for the Slavic idiom and meaning of the words, combined with colorful lyricism and italianità, perfectly fitting the Russian and cosmopolitan musical language of these two masters.

Piotr Beczala is one of the most sought-after tenors of his age, both on the opera and concert stage. His debut album Vincerò!also available from NativeDSD – has been one of the most successful and critically acclaimed opera recital albums of the last few years. During the 2021 Opus Klassik Awards, Piotr Beczala was crowned as Singer of the Year for this exceptional recording.

Pianist Helmut Deutsch is a first-class song accompanist, working together with the greatest vocalists of today.

Press reviews

MusicWeb International

The melancholy mood sums up the basic atmosphere of the music of these two composers, and the summary of my impressions of the present disc is as follows: an utterly valuable addition to the growing discography of the songs of Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky with sensitive, deeply considered singing and playing in a world-class performance.
