Notes & Reviews:

To the 75th anniversary of the great Russian singer of our time Elena Obraztsova, Firma Melodiya presents the singer’s concert recorded on 29 July 1980 in Moscow. The concert at the Column Hall of the House of Unions took part within the cultural programme of the Olympic Games. The singer was accompanied by the Academic Orchestra of Russian Folk Instruments conducted by Nikolai Nekrasov. The programme comprised old Russian romances. The singer turned to this genre when she was at the peak of her acting and singing career after she shone in classical Russian and foreign repertoires on the world’s best opera stages for many years. Brilliant Carmen and Azucena, Santuzza and Marina Mniszech, she was always a singer who deeply sensed and understood the Russian soul.
