Asmik Grigorian has gained international renown as an interpreter of the female leads in Tchaikovsky’s operas. Appearing with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Lithuanian soprano made a deep impression in the title role of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta, which she sang in concert performances under the direction of Kirill Petrenko. Now we can enjoy Asmik Grigorian as a song recitalist – in musical miniatures by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. The pieces show that the emotional depth of both composers’ large-scale works is also present in this small form.
