Catalogue Number: 08O038
Reference: MEL CD 10 01945
Description: Many Russian opera recordings of this period have appeared on various labels in substandard sound, from nth-generation sources. We offer this one not only because collectors may value hearing the 28-year-old Vishnevskaya very early in her career but because they can hear her in almost flawless sound - filtered, presumably, but free of tape hiss and/or background noise. 2 CDs. No libretto. Galina Vishnevskaya (soprano), Larisa Avdeyeva (contralto), Yevgeni Belov (baritone), Sergei Lemeshev (tenor), Soloists, Choir and Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre; Boris Khaikin. Rec. 1955.
