Album Summary

>Glinka, Mikhail : A Life for the Tsar
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Considered the father of Russian classical music, Mikhail Glinka's opera, Ivan Susanin, was the first of his two great operas. Set in 1612, Ivan Susanin tells the story of the Russian peasant and patriotic hero, Ivan, who sacrifices his life for the Tsar by leading astray a group of marauding Poles. Performed by vocalists Nicola Ghiuselev, Elena Stoyanova, Hristina Angelakova, Roumen Doikov, Nicolai Stoilov, Angel Petkov, and Dimiter Stanchev, with accompaniment by the Sofia National Opera Chorus and Orchestra, this is absolutely an album you do not want to miss.
