One of the greatest loves of my life is singing. I am a bass baritone, but why don’t you click on the link below and join me in singing these few lines of the Song of the Volga Boatmen, even if you’re a tenor or a soprano or an alto or... don’t know quite what you are?

Yesh-cho-ra-zik, yesh-cho da raz!
Lost in Florence“A man in a car calls out to me at an intersection in Florence and tells me he is lost. I tell him to go straight ahead to Via Tornabuoni and then ask God for directions.
“He drives away without a word of thanks. Obviously he is a Florentine. So why was he lost?”

I am so glad you like this song. All Russians know it. This traditional Russian song was first recorded in 1866. It was a regular part of the repertoire of our world famous singer Feodor Chaliapin in 1920s-1930s.
I was fortunate to hear Ivan Rebrovhim singing this song at one of his last concerts.Posted: 2022-02-15 21:41 by Natalia Valentino
