The cycle is dedicated to the three great Russian figures: Sergei Rachmaninov, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Igor Stravinsky. It is a meditation on the feelings that any woman has through her life: a dream of the pure beauty (#1. Vocalize), the breathless expectation of the life major event and the disappointed hopes (#2. Dreams of Don Juan) and a mix of irony and despair through the humoristic sight to what has happened (#3. Ducks Are Flying). It can be performed as a whole or, if there is a time limitation, with any two movements.
