About this product
- DescriptionThis tender, lyrical and passionate story of unrequited love holds a special place in Russian hearts. Tatyana's letter scene and the Polonaise are two much loved glories of the score; each act is tightly constructed around an antithesis of public and private scenes, and the dances are integral to the drama. The essence of both opera and poem is yearning, whether the artist's quest for his muse, or the lover for the beloved. Both poet and composer are true, in different ways, to this theme. The essays included in this guide explore the subtle and unexpected relationship between the words and music in Tchaikovsky's intimate 'Lyrical Scenes after Pushkin'.
- Author BiographyAlexander Pushkin (17991837) was a dramatist, novelist, and poet, penning such influential works as The Captain's Daughter. Roger Clarke has translated Boris Godunov and Little Tragedies and Ruslan and Ludmila.
