"Once upon a time the first song that had sounded in the world left an invisible "living sound" in the human soul, and the sound of this song became an initial point for coordination between all the other sounds. This sound became for us a living symbol of unity and simplicity. As all the complexity, all variety of human songs is contained in it." (N. Medtner)

That very special musical space which songs occupied in Medtner's work was prepared for them primordially - they settled down themselves there deliberately and with some royal simplicity. The singing nature of music, so clearly realized by Medtner, called the primogeniture instrument - Voice; and beside it - a true and sensitive Master-pianist: in variety and complexity of his art is all the musical experience of passed centuries.
This way we see the vocal scores of the Composer and so we can hear from the author's unsurpassed songs recordings, and we do not stop to be astonished by some "simple things".
It's astonishing, this equality and unity of the Voice and the Instrument: the equilibrium of the result, which is accessible only for one who is within "loving contemplation" (N.Medtner).

It's amazing, this constant congeniality of music and poetry - when the music responds to the sense of the word, to the letter and the sound of language, creating in exact resonance the Harmony of the song; when the precious verses, being carefully put in the noble metal setting of musical sounds, are sparkling by their different, imperceptible hitherto facets.
It's astonishing, how the Composer's spirit sprouts through two different cultures -"maternal" and "paternal", Russian and German. So at ease, stepping together with Goethe by "curly path" (O. Mandelstam) Medtner appears at the summit of German musical tradition; and together with Pushkin (it seems as if he holds the poet's hand) - in Russian acropolis.
But the Master of Music is still the same - the same profile in other lighting, the same many-sided genius, the same knight-artist, true to his Muse, in the search of the Simplicity.
