Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Red Star Red Army Chorus and Dance Ensemble was created in 1978 in Moscow mostly to raise through music cultural and patriotic feelings about the Red Army. A Russian proverb says "A fairy tale is a lie, but a song tells the truth." Though fairy tales have become rare in present-day Russia, folk tunes still form an integral part of daily life and the fairy tale inspired music of Rimsky-Korsakov's time is still heard in concert. Folk music of many cultures around the world sings of love and loss, of sadness and solace, of brave deeds as well as everyday problems. To this universal message the Russian sound is accompanied by the balalaika and the bayan (a large button-key accordion). Humor and dance can also be found here, as well as Read more melancholic longing and heroic pathos. "Kalinka" and "Moscow Nights" captures brash power and deep emotions when sung by the rich voices of the Red Star Red Army Chorus. Read less
