Notes & Reviews:

Melodiya presents recordings of the outstanding Soviet conductor Alexander Melik-Pashayev, whose performing career at the USSR Bolshoi Theatre lasted more than 30 years and made up a whole era in the life of the famous company. His numerous recordings of opera sets, including those awarded with prestigious foreign prizes such as Borodin' s Prince Igor, Prokofiev' s War and Peace, and Mussorgsky' s Boris Godunov, are very well known. He is less known as a symphony conductor, but Melik-Pashayev' s concerts with the Bolshoi orchestra were some of the brightest ones in Moscow' s eventful musical life. His repertoire included not only fragments from operas, but also symphonic and oratorio compositions by Beethoven, Verdi, Schubert, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich, and Shebalin.
