Arranger Jack Adler-McKean writes, “What better way of displaying the tuba’s remarkably beautiful singing tone than through the medium of Romantic song itself? Written between the ages of seventeen and twenty-three, these songs exemplify Rachmaninoff’s prodigious talent for combining timeless melodies with his unique style of piano writing, and now can demonstrate the tuba’s exceptional ability at replicating a Russian bass-baritone voice. Without texts to rely on from such luminary poets as Aleksei Tolstoy and Nikolai Minsky, the performer is presented with challenges that go far beyond the notes themselves. The final reward, however, of being able to create music of such exceptional beauty will inevitably justify all the work that is put in.”
