    Ah, Nicolai Gedda and Russian music - this is just wonderful. Very expressive singing.


    He's the second best Lensky in my opinion. Lemeshev is quite unbeatable in that role, both temperamentally and vocally he's Lensky incarnate. Also, that recording has such artists like Vishnevskaya and Belov.. another thing I love Lemeshev's diction, that has something old fashioned about it, he really feels 19th century. Although, that is one of the things I love about that aspect in art song genre when words are not sung exactly like they would in spoken language. They are not only artfully arranged, but also 'artfully' pronounced. For example, like another song below Gedda's clip, sung by Ian Bostridge 'the ash grove'. Rules of pronunciation change slightly in art songs lied across different languages. French usually don't make their 'r's sound guttural, English nearly roll their r's and immense care is taken with each word. I particularly also like when diction tends to be sharp and precise (YAY for Lemeshev). It is king of obvious why art song deserves it's name.

    Very good singing, nuanced interpretation and poetic temperament in spades - the guy is truly Lensky material, but man, what's with all the crying? That was a bit too much, and not healthy for the voice. I wonder if he came up with this idea himself or was badly advised by someone, or perhaps his emotions got out of hand.However, strangely, to my ears, his singing didn't seem to get affected.

    I don't know if perhaps I posted this before, I am sorry if I did, but it's been puzzling me for some time now.
