Song information

“Очи чёрные” (Ochi chyornye, literally “Black Eyes” or “Dark Eyes”) was initially a poem by Євген Гребінка later adapted to the melody of Florian Hermann's waltz. The black eyes in the title belonged to Мари́я Васи́льевна, the author's love and future wife. The song underwent countless modifications by numerous artists making it almost impossible to point at the 'canonical' version. Among the singers who performed “Очи чёрные” the most notable names include: Luciano Pavarotti, Фёдор Шаляпин, Ivan Rebroff, Louis Armstrong. Our arrangement is based on the one by Alexandrov Ensemble; we hope you will like it.
