Oda Slobodskaya sings Tatiana in one of the earliest and most authentic recordings in Russian. This was a role she sang many times in the early twentieth century and she loved it above all others.

She described Pushkin as a great creator of "types" and found in Eugene Onegin the authentic pre-revolutionary Russia she remembered from her childhood

Slobodskaya was born in Vilnius, then part of Russia, and studied with the formidable Natalia Iretskaya, herself a pupil of Pauline Viardot Garcia. She sang major roles in the Mariinsky theatre St Petersburg but after the Revolution and subsequent famine, she left Russia with Fyodor Chaliapin when he brought his own opera company to the west.

She eventually married and settled in London where she enjoyed great success as both a concert and opera singer. She continued to give entertaining recitals of Russian songs well into her seventies and was a witty and characterful narrator of Peter and the Wolf.
