Ophelia Songs: For Soprano and Piano By Dmitri N. Smirnov Cover Image


Five Ophelia's Mad Songs by William Shakespeare from his tragedy "Hamlet" were set to music by Russian/British composer Dmitri N. Smirnov in January 2019. The soprano is accompanied here by piano. If a singer for some reason would prefer to perform these songs in Russian instead of the original English, there is a Russian singable translation provided (see page 4). The soprano and string trio version of these songs is also available (see op. 197 in a separate edition: Meladina Music series No. 29). Dmitri Nikolayevich Smirnov is a composer with an international reputation who graduated from Moscow Conservatoire and studied in with composers Edison Denisov and Philip Herschkowitz (a student of both Alban Berg and Anton Webern). He wrote near 200 compositions in all possible genres of contemporary classical music. Since 1991 he lives and works in England.
