Stravinsky composed these songs during his honeymoon in 1906, and dedicated his settings of Alexander Pushkin's erotic and pastoral poems (which were based on works by Vicomte de Parni) to his young wife. The songs were orchestrated in 1907 and first performed a year later. The music is neo-romantic, elegiac and delightful, and already contains some Debussyisms.
