An Aria A Day #163

‘Do not sing to me, beautiful maiden’
from Six Romances, Op. 4 No. 4
by Sergei Rachmaninov
Piano Narelle French

18th October, 2020

The week we joined mezzo-soprano Milijana Nikolic and Head of Music Narelle French in rehearsals ahead of ENCORE – Opera Queensland Returns to the Stage. For this performance for the final weekend of An Aria A Day, Milijana performs the ‘melancholic’ ‘Do not sing to me, beautiful maiden’ (‘Не пой, красавица’ ‘Ne poy, krasavitsa, pri mne).

The words for this piece were written by the Russian poet, playwright, and novelist Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, who is considered by many as the founder of modern Russian literature.
