About this Recording

PUSHKIN, A.: Evgenii Onegin (Unabridged)

Though Evgenii Onegin is best known in the West through Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin, the original narrative poem is one of the landmarks of Russian literature. In the poem, the eponymous hero repudiates love, only to later experience the pain of rejection himself. Pushkin’s unique style proves timeless in its exploration of love, life, passion, jealousy and the consequences of social convention. This new recording of Mary Hobson’s vivid verse translation effectively reintroduces Evgenii Onegin for the twenty-first century.
