Notes & Reviews:

The A.V. Alexandrov Ensemble of the Soviet Army, twice decorated with the Order of the Red Banner and Red Star, is one of the foremost artistic groups of the ex-USSR. It bears the name of its founder and first director, Alexander V Alexandrov. The Montreal paper La Presse said of their Canadian Tour of 1987, "The chorus, under B. Alexandrov's direction, is inarguably the best in the world of the genre. The concert was a display of pyrotechnic virtuosity."
