Music by A. Varlamov (1801-1848)
Poem by A. Fet (1820-1892)
Do Not Wake Her Up at Dawn
Do not wake her up at dawn-
She sleeps so peacefully.
Long into the night
She sat at her window,
Watching closely the play of moon and clouds in the sky.
While the moon shone brighter and brighter,
And nightingale sang more passionately,
Her face became paler and her heart raced faster.
So do not wake her up too early-
She sleeps so sweetly.
Original piano accompaniment is by Arkady Figlin.
The Romance was recorded at Sean Sweeney Recording Studio in March, 2010.
