Notes & Reviews:

"...The dark-toned Vassily Gerello...captures most of the desperation of the outsider who joins a gypsy band...It is the Zemfira who makes this most worth hearing: with a big voice of glamour and freshness, Olga Guirakova is one of the most exciting new Russian sopranos to have emerged in recent years, and this appears to be her first recording. Vsevolod Grivnov...and Mikhail Kit...give good performances..." ****- Allison, BBC
