Description: 'Homage' is a vocal cycle for soprano and cello dedicated to the great Russians and has hree movements: Vocalize (to S. Rakhmaninov), Don Juan (based on Marina Tsvetaeva excerpt from her poem 'Don Juan') and 'Ducks Are Flying', a reworked Russian folk song (to I. Stravinsky).When the cycle was written I realized that it is a meditation on the feelings that any woman has through her life: a dream of the pure beauty (#1.Vocalize), the breathless expectation of the life major event and the disappointed hopes (#2.Don Juan) and a mix of irony and despair through the humoristic sight to what has happened (#3).
