Notes and Editorial Reviews

Melodiya presents recordings of the outstanding Soviet conductor Alexander Melik-Pashayev, whose performing career at the USSR Bolshoi Theatre lasted more than 30 years and made up a whole era in the life of the famous company. His numerous recordings of opera sets, including those awarded with prestigious foreign prizes such as Borodin’s Prince Igor, Prokofiev’s War and Peace, and Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, are very well known. He is less known as a symphony conductor, but Melik-Pashayev’s concerts with the Bolshoi orchestra were some of the brightest ones in Moscow’s eventful musical life. His repertoire included not only fragments from operas, but also symphonic and oratorio compositions by Beethoven, Verdi, Schubert, Brahms, Read more Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich, and Shebalin.
