Description
"There is a melodic beauty and voluptuous melancholy in them that will touch listeners who adore the concertos," observes the New Jersey Star-Ledger of Rachmaninov's songs. "Oja's dynamism gives them an operatic intensity, with 'Duma' (Brooding) surging like an aria from a tempestuous stage scene. Shostakovich's 'Five Romances' traces five stages in a relationship, and Oja captures it all from expectation to hurt to fond nostalgia." Roger Vignoles, her accompanist, studied with Gerald Moore, "the greatest the world had to offer during his lifetime, and the father of the modern accompaniment style. Vignoles glides in and out of these songs with nary a blink at the immense differences between these composers, guiding his young partner Iris Oja (lead alto in the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir). The Spanish Songs [by Shostakovich] are a different bird—hot-blooded lyrics from folk melodies set to Russian music" (Audiophile Audition).
