«Я помню чудное мгновенье»
Запись с концерта Юрия Гуляева в Большом зале Московской консерватории (1978)

Концертмейстер — Розалия Трохман

Mikhail Glinka (lyrics by Alexander Pushkin).
"Ya pomnu chuhdnoye mgnovenie" ("A magic moment I remember...")
Performed by Yuri Gulyaev (baritone) and Rosalia Trokhman (piano) at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory (1978).

The lyrics translated into English:

A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare.

I pray to mute despair and anguish,
To vain the pursuits world esteems,
Long did I hear your soothing accents,
Long did your features haunt my dreams.

Time passed. A rebel storm-blast scattered
The reveries that once were mine
And I forgot your soothing accents,
Your features gracefully divine.

In dark days of enforced retirement
I gazed upon grey sky above
With no ideals to inspire me,
No one to cry for, live for, love.

Then came a moment of renaissance,
I looked up - you again were there -
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare.

My heart is feeling celebration,
I did remember it again -
The aim to strive, the inspiration,
And love, and life, and sweet heart pain.
