Musical selection "The Autumn romances" in our Music Library
The forest stands as if a fairy house -
Painted purple, gold, vermilion,
Resembling cheerful, varicolored screen
Protecting a luminous glade.
Ivan Bunin (1870-1953)
There is no brighter and more varicolored season than mellow autumn. Bronze color of oaks, bright yellow greenery of lindens and birches, yellow-greenish ash trees, vermilion coloured speckle of maples and aspens, intertwine and create an amazing combination of colors and smells. There is nothing more pleasant than walking in the forest at this season, inhaling the piquant scent of leaves rustling underfoot.
In October, autumn continues to delight us with its bright colors, the wind noisily whirls the fallen leaves, covering the forest paths with golden carpet. However, gradually the nights are getting longer and the dawn is coming later and later. Very soon, the sun will be a rare welcome guest and all leaves will fall off rather quickly. The second half of the month will not be so beautiful - it will rain and it will become cooler ...
To create a cozy autumn mood, support peace of mind and emotional warmth, the museum Collection has prepared a musical selection of old gypsy romances performed by the outstanding Soviet pop singers of the 20th century - Tamara Tsereteli, Nina Dulkevich and Isabella Yurieva, accompanied by the prominent pianist and composer of the 20th century - David Vladimirovich Ashkenazi. All works are digitized from gramophone records stored in the Museum's Music Library.
