Singing Rachmaninoff's songs and their voice type

Postby arin0825 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 4:16 am

I understand Rachmaninoff assigned specific voice type to his songs, for instance Op. 8 No.4 "For a life of pain I have giving my love" is label to be sung by a Mezzo-Soprano. Are there any sources tells that Rachmaninoff preferred or wanted his songs to be sung by the specific voice he assigned?
