Утро Tуманное  -   Morning Misty

Гори, Гори моя звезда - Burn, burn, my star

Осенние листья  - Autumn leaves

День и ночь -  Day and night

Вдоль по Питерской - Along the Petersburg Road

На заре ты её не буди - In the dawn you do not wake her up

Ах ты душечка - Oh, you darling

Очи чёрные - Black Eyes

Эй ямщик, гони ка к Яру - Hey coachman, drive to Yar

Италианские, русские и циганские песни - Italian, Russian and Gypsy Songs
