This a cappella edition is based on Tchaikovsky's arrangement of a song composed by 18th century Russian composer, Dmitry Bortnyansky. Bortnyansky's polyphonic style (developed during an extended stay in Italy) is evident throughout, as are the uniquely Russian harmonic progressions. A great masterwork sound and a solid study of cultural influences on composition.
