Notes & Reviews:

The name Sofia Petrovna Preobrazhenskaya became will-known in the West because of two historical complete opera recordings, both made in 1946: she sang the title role in Tchaikovsky's 'Maid of Orleans' and the role of Marfa in 'Khovanshchina.' Her debut was as the page Urban in Meyerbeer's 'Les Huguenots.' She was often heard in Russian and Ukrainian musical centers and had a successful career as a concert singer but never performed abroad.
