Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of the prominent singer and soloist of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre Zurab Anjaparidze. Zurab Anjaparidze debuted at the Bolshoi as Josť in Bizet's Carmen in 1957. Along with the part of Radames in Verdi's Aida, that role became Anjaparidze's trademark, and soon the singer took the place of the leading heroic tenor of the opera company. The role of Herman in Tchaikovsky's Queen of Spades was the artist's highest accomplishment at the Bolshoi. He also sang Herman on the Bolshoi's tour at La Scala in 1964. After that making the Italian press dubbed him the "Soviet Franco Corelli." The album includes fragments from the operas performed by Zurab Anjaparidze - The Queen of Spades, Carmen, Aida, as well as Verdi's Il Trovatore and Otello, Puccini's Tosca and Manon Lescaut, Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. The recordings were made in the 1960s and 1970s with the orchestra of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre conducted by Alexander Melik-Pashayev, Boris Khaikin and Mark Ermler.
