“Милый друг, иль ты не чуешь,

Что одно на целом свете –

Только то, что сердце к серцу

Говорит в немом привете?”

 

(1892)   —   VLADIMIR SOLOVYOV

“Dear friend, don’t you sense the thing

That matters most in the world

Is what one heart whispers to another

In a quiet welcome?”

“A RUSSIAN SALON Of Music and Poetry ”

We immerse ourselves in this rich music; and we are stirred by the song and words of

Russian composers and poets of the early 20th century. They dared to express their soul,

love and hope in the face of epic upheavals and overwhelming circumstances.
