Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians remarks on the characteristic charm of Tchaikovsky's songs, noting their "penetrating sweetness and sadness" as well as their "vocal excellence."
In addition to the celebrated title work, this collection presents a rich selection of 40 enchanting melodies, including Don Juan's Serenade, Mignon's Song, Night of Stars, Serenade, Song of the Gipsy Girl, and other exquisite pieces for voice and piano.
