Performers Conductors Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This recording made by Melodiya in 1955 captures a remarkable performance of Eugene Onegin with performers from the Bolshoi Opera during one of its golden ages. The Bolshoi had been performing the opera for nearly three quarters of a century, and the singers and instrumentalists had the spirit of Tchaikovsky in their blood... The mono sound is surprisingly good for the time, full and warm, with good clarity. The performers' idiomatic musicality and profound understanding of the opera make this a recording that should be of interest to any lovers of Tchaikovsky or of Romantic opera." -All Music Guide
