Notes & Reviews:

For many years, staying a great vocal master who was always true to himself, Muslim Magomayev successfully combined performances in the operatic genre with variety concerts. A soloist of the Azerbaijani Theatre of Opera and Ballet, he took a training course at La Scala and performed on many of the operatic stages of the former USSR but rejected (what a rare instance!) the invitation to join the company of the Bolshoi Theatre realizing the colossal responsibility that step would have entailed. He could not and did not want to sacrifice his versatility and openness, his contact with a huge audience, his concert, studio, acting and composing career even on such a resplendent operatic altar. His recordings of Russian and foreign classical operatic music made in 1964 together with his friend and associate, outstanding Azerbaijani composer and conductor Niyazi Tagizade Hajibeyov sound today as fresh and impressive as they did then. Magomayev's art of musical and dramatic transformation is striking, and the way he handles it is could make even the most distinguished operatic artists jealous.
