Alexander Alyabyev. The Nightingale

Alyabyevs most famous work is The Nightingale (Соловей), a song based on a poem by Anton Delvig. It was composed while Alyabyev was in prison, in 1825. It has entered Russian consciousness as akin to a folk song.

The song became more widely known after having been introduced into Rosina’s singing lesson scene in Gioachino Rossini’s The Barber of Seville by Pauline Viardot, followed by Adelina Patti and Marcella Sembrich.
