Ask IPA Source: Do you offer Russian literature?

An IPA Source customer asks:

I am an enormous fan and user of IPA Source. You do a wonderful job and your work has no competition. However, I’m surprised to find you don’t have Russian titles. Is there a plan to move forward with Russian songs? Rachmaninoff, etc.?

Bard answers:

Thanks for contacting us.

No, we don’t have Russian literature. You can find much of what you might need in the books published by Leyerle Publications – they carry a large number of books with texts to the works of TCHAIKOVSKY, RACHMANINOV, MUSSORGSKY, and SHOSTAKOVICH as well as Russian aria collections. They aren’t particularly expensive but you might also find them in your university library or on interlibrary loan.

Thanks for writing!
