Notes

A collection of some of the most beautiful and romantic tracks I know. Mostly Russian but not all. Enjoy :)

@641045971 @fairysbox Almost - the painting is called "Swan Princess", but it illustrates a Rimsky-Korsakov opera called "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" based a Pushkin story. Vrubel was actually married to the woman who sang the part, and he designed a lot of the costumes/sets for the opera house it premiered at. Below is a photo of his wife in the costume. Definitely check out Vrubel's other stuff, he's fantastic. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/db/Tsvetkova_as_Militrisa_1900.jpg
