Moscow Nights

This is a beaut version of the famous song Moscow Nights (podmoskovniye vechera) beloved of Muscovites and I daresay most Russians even those who live elsewhere in the biggest country on earth. Not to mention all the ex-pats. I shared with friends earlier today and now with all blog watchers. There are of course good English words but this is in the original. I've know it with pleasure for over fifty years, since a summer spent - in part - in Moscow. The lyric has gentle romance and especially a portrait in words and melody of the Moscow River in the evening light, then moonlight, and finally the dawn.
