There are Russian sopranos with lovelier, less vibrato-laden voices than Kazarnovskaya’s burnished metallic tone. But she’s expressive, sincere and refreshingly natural; and Orfenova is a first-rate pianist. This is also a rare opportunity to hear Tchaikovsky’s touching and enchanting Children’s Songs.
