Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873 - 1943), Lilacs Op. 21 No. 5 for solo piano (1900-1902)
Performed by Dmitri Alexeev (1993)
This piece follows a poem by Ekaterina Andreyena Beketova:
In the morning, at daybreak,
over the dewy grass,
I will go to breathe the crisp dawn;
and in the fragrant shade,
where the lilac crowds,
I will go to seek my happiness...
In life, only one happiness
it was fated for me to discover,
and that happiness lives in the lilacs;
in the green boughs,
in the fragrant bunches,
my poor happiness blossoms...
