Notes & Reviews:
Melodiya presents a complete recording of the epic Russian opera Prince Igor by Alexander Borodin! It took Borodin 19 years to compose this opera, based on the old Russian poem "The Tale of Igor's Campaign" and also incorporating material from other sources. Eternally busy, the author combined composing with a chair in chemistry and an active social life, and never finished the work. Prince Igor reached us thanks to the effort of the composer's friends Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov, who managed to complete Borodin's masterpiece. This recording - featuring a galaxy of outstanding soloists such as Ivan Petrov, Elena Obraztsova, Vladimir Atlantov, Alexander Vedernikov, and Arthur Eisen - is the only one that features the music of the opera in its entirety!Notes & Reviews:
