Opera in English - Mussorgsky: Boris Godunov / Daniel, et al

Album Summary

>Mussorgsky, Modest : Boris Godunov
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"With the rich sonics, superior dynamic range, and deep, wide soundstage typical of a Chandos production, the five extended excerpts (Coronaation Scene, Varlaam's Song, Scene in the Imperial Apartments, St. Basil Scene, and Boris's Death) heard here have never sounded better..."-Pernick, Fanfare

Penguin Guide
John Tomlinson has made the part of Boris his own, and this generous, 75-minute selection of excerpts from Boris Godunov is highly recommendable, even when compared with current Russian versions of Mussorgsky's masterpiece.
