Quick Overview

Spring Waters is one of the most popular songs by Rachmaninoff and has remained a concert staple of Russian vocal repertoire for over a century since its first performance. The piece is a remarkable tonal picture of Feodor Tyutchyev’s poem that heralds the arrival of spring. The piano accompaniment, written with Rachmaninoff’s unmistakably abundant and virtuosic style, rushes in torrents of arpeggios, portraying waves of cascading water while accompanying the impassioned vocal melody, which perfectly matches every image and sentiment reflected enthusiastically in the poem setting. Ms. Sharkova’s arrangement of this song offers a pronunciation guide and spoken recording for the Russian text.
