"Ty i moja gitara / Ты и ета гитара" - Stare polskie tango w Rosji x 3 !


"Ty i moja gitara / Ты и ета гитара" (You and My Guitar), 1931 Polish tango composed by Jerzy Petersburski very soon acquired a Russian version and since that time has been in the repertoire of Russian artists or artists just singing in Russian language.
The video is starting with Polish version and is ending with another Polish recording - in the fragment. The middle part is filled with the contemporary recording of the female trio, Trio Romance.

Polish recordings:
1/ Mieczysław Fogg with Chór Dana, Polish Odeon, 1931
2/ Niki Lordo with orchestra, Cristal-Electro, 1931

As for the Russian version, again I am thankful to Alex (Shura) Tabenkin for acquainting me with artists that had not been known to me and who seem to deserve special attention of the listener. They quite often happen to grab the heart of the author of this place, too.
Recording from the CD "Trio 'Romance' & Orkiestr 'Modern Foks', Tantsevalnye khiti 30-50-yh godov".

Trio Romance

Formed in Tallin, 1997, Trio Romance is a well-known band both in Estonia and abroad. The group consists of three artists:
Galina Timonina (vocal), Natalya Perevoztchikova (vocal), Alla Kitas (piano and vocal).

The trio is well known for its interpretations of old and contemporary Russian romances and Russian jazz.
Trio Romance has been awarded many prizes at international competitions and festivals: "Spring of Romance" (Saint-Petersburg, 2000), "With Love to Russia" (Volgograd, 2004), "Lahti jazz" (Finland, 2004). They won a special Revival of Russian Salon Music prize at the international Tampere TUNE festival (Finland, 2005) and an award entitled "White Night of Romantic Music" (Saint Petersburg, 2006).
Several TV and radio programs and films have featured the Trio and their work: "Russians in Estonia" (Finnish TV), "Declaration of Love" (Saint-Petersburg), "Persona", "Russians in Estonia", "Subboteya" (Estonian TV). They have also appeared on "Good Morning, My Love!" which airs on TDK, and have repeatedly been on the program "Romance of the Romance" on the Russian Television's Culture channel.
The trio has issued three CDs of romances and one of dance music hits from the 1930s to the 1950s, the latter in cooperation with an Estonian jazz orchestra, Modern Fox.
The vocal skills, hard work and artistic qualities have allowed them to gain popularity not only in Estonia but also abroad, in Latvia, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Russia.
The qualities that differentiate them from other bands are their soft touch when it comes to performing, the melodies and incredible harmony of their voices, sincerity, charm and elegance - all that combined with brave new sounds, good understanding of limits and high class professionalism.
