Nina Dorliak (Soprano)

Born: July 7, 1908 - S.Petersburg, Russia
Died: May 17, 1998 - Moscow, Russia

The Russian soprano, Nina L'vovna Dorliak, was the daughter of the renowned singer Ksenya Dorliak, teacher at the Moscow Conservatory. She learned the art of singing at the Conservatory through her mother.

Nina Dorliak's career started in 1935, as a chamber singer. In 1947 she became Professor at the Moscow Conservatory. Her most renowned pupils are Galina Pisarenko and Elena Bryleva. She gave many concerts in Russia and abroad, mainly in the chamber singing repertoire, in which are to be found Italian composers as Scarlatti, or French (such as Debussy), and the Russian classical authors like Glinka, Musorgsky, Sergei Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Dmitri Shostakovich.

In 1946, Nina Dorliak met the pianist Sviatoslav Richter and became his partner until the death of the Maestro on August 1, 1997. She accompanied Sviatoslav Richter both in his complex live and career for more than fifty years, supporting him in his last sickness. She was not able to survive to the death of her partner for more than a few months. Her obsequies took place at Moscow, after the last farewell in the Conservatory Great Hall.

Nina Dorliak left a legacy of many recordings, in duo with Sviatoslav Richter too, with whom she sung Robert Schumann, Prokofiev and Musorsgky.
