This is song was written in 1884. The composer was Florian Hermann.  Classic performance is Red Army Choir - Dark Eyes (Очи чёрные). From Wikipedia:

"Dark Eyes" (Russian: Очи чёрные, Ochi chyornye; English translation: Black Eyes; French translation: Les yeux noirs) is probably the most famous Russian romance song.

The lyrics were written by the Ukrainian poet and writer Yevhen Hrebinka. The first publication of the poem was in Hrebinka's own Russian translation in Literaturnaya gazeta on 17 January 1843.

The words were subsequently set to Florian Hermann's Valse Hommage[1] (in an arrangement by S. Gerdel') and published on 7 March 1884.

Feodor Chaliapin also popularised the song abroad in a version in his own adaptation.

The most renowned and played version of this song was written by Adalgiso Ferraris, and published, when still in Russia after 1910, with German editor Otto Kuhl.[2] Ferraris then published it again in 1931 by Paris Editions Salabert, as "Tes yeux noirs (impression russe) "[3] and with Jacques Liber, on Oct 9th, 1931.[4]

Ferraris, an Italian-born British composer, had spent many years in Russia before 1915. The song became one if his major successes in the 1920s and 1930s, being also played by Albert Sandler, shown here in a British Pathe film of 1932 , by Leslie Jeffries in 1939, and sung by Al Bowlly in 1939 with words of Albert Mellor [6] Max Jaffa also recorded it.[7]

Other versions include the 1941 recording of Ferraris' Dark Eyes played by Harry Parry and his radio sextet, and a very original interpretation, for electric guitar, played for years by Chet Atkins.. Ferraris' version is still played today by many artists worldwide, such as the Trio Artemis and a recent recording by Hristo Kardjiev.[8]

The song has also been played, briefly, by the Three Tenors in their 1990 concert in Rome .
