Product Description


A magnificent concert event. As the Russian journalist Elena Karakoleva writes, "These songs were known and loved by everybody in this country. A number of highly talented composers and poets were among their authors, and no Soviet family get-together could pass without these songs being sung by all of the guests.... [This concert] given by Dmitri Hvorostovsky in the vast 6,500 seat hall of the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow [made us feel] happy and united, because the music reminded us of the meaning of life and of our great cultural heritage." Booklet includes complete texts and translations.
