Vysotsky

This playlist presents the English half of the bilingual album entitled Бёрнс & Vysotsky, recorded in 2014. The concept of the album was to celebrate the work and lives of two great bards – Robert Burns and Vladimir Vysotsky – by calling attention to the fact that they were both born on the same day (25th January). The English translations here were done by Thomas Beavitt (with the exception of “Ballad of the Free Archers”, which is based on an earlier translation by Vadim Astrakhan). The illustrations were done by Vicky Stonebridge.
