A cloudy sky and raindrops beating on the window: this itself is practically music, and for centuries, the sound of rain from the clouds has inspired not only painters but also poets and composers. On her debut GENUIN CD, violist Karolina Errera and her piano partner Lilit Grigoryan present a selection of highly emotional music from John Dowland to Benjamin Britten. The prizewinner of numerous international competitions has placed a wide range of original works and arrangements on the program of this CD – moving works that are best suited by both the warm sound of viola and piano, as well as the playing culture of the two interpreters!

ORF – Ö1
Is it raindrops tapping on the window, or tears that become music in these songs? In any case, the warming sound of the viola gives comfort, and the sensitive interplay of Errera and Grigoryan gives rise to a pleasant atmosphere of familiarity."
On June 22, 2022, "Songs of Rain" was presented by Marie-Theres Himmler in the program Des Cis on Ö1.

Scala Radio
On 3 June 2022, "Songs of Rain" was presented on the British classical music radio station Scala Radio.
