Product Description:
The Rough Guide to the Music of Russia introduces some of the country's most beloved artists to an international audience that, until now, has largely overlooked Russia's folk and popular music. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, the music scene in Russia changed and the communist censors disappeared allowing the bards, flok songs, singers and rock bands to flourish. This album features music from Russia's first lady of song, Alla Pugacheva, legendary singer-poet Vladimir Vysotsky, Cossack folk from Zhanna Bichevskaya, Gypsy virtuoso Loyko, and the uplifting balalaikas of the Terem Quartet.

Product Description:
Theodore Bikel had already recorded several albums for Elektra when he made Songs of a Russian Gypsy, but were those records anywhere as successful as this one? 'Nyet!' In fact, not only did 'Songs' far outsell any previous Elektra release by any artist, but it was also such a hit that the label rushed to record a sequel, Songs of Russia Old & New, that we've combined with its predecessor to form a great, Russian-themed twofer! Bikel himself in the notes says that to this day he gets mail about these two albums, so we're expecting a big response to this 'Collectors' Choice Music' exclusive. 2006.

Product Description:
We can talk only approximately about the date and authorship of chants represented on the disk. Some musicologists believe that Eastern Orthodox liturgical music originates from the singing of levites in ancient Israel. Making its way with Christianity and changing in the light of national features, Eastern Orthodox (Byzantine) church choir music has begun church-singing culture of Georgia, Bulgaria, Serbia and Rus. No doubt, "The First Ode of the Easter Canon" is the most unique and rare recording on this disk. The Church attributes its authorship to St. John the Damascene, who lived in the 8th century. He established church "oktoechos" (eight tones) - common base of liturgical music. Such names as John Glyka, St John Koukousel, John Klad and others marked the period of "Kalophonia" ("beautiful singing") in the 12-14th centuries. The works of Theodore of Phokea (the 18th century) are the best samples of kalophonia-music. The base of Russian Orthodox music - Znamenny tune was usually called "Angel-like". It is mainly because of the power of prayer and spiritual purity of the echoi (tones) melodies, crystallized in standing of Holy Rus before the God.**** The ensemble of medieval music "Sreteniye" was founded in 1990 in Kharkov, by graduates of Kharkov institute of beaux arts. Well-known Greek protopsalt L. Angelopoulos gave invaluable help to "Sretenye". Not only he supplemented the repertoire of the choir with a number of very rare ancient chants shared his knowledge of Byzantine singing characteristic features.

Product Description:
Historically, the people of Russia have been no stranger to tyranny. However trampled was the spirit of the Russian people during the miseries of Communism, it did produce some very stirring and tuneful music, often based on traditional folk melodies, sometimes operatically inspired. It was also the Communist way to encourage the people to sing about it's great triumphs, of which obviously the Great Revolution in 1917 was foremost, followed by the Great Patriotic War, which is how Soviet Russia named it's part in the Second World War. Even in the greatest depths of the Cold War, cultural exchanges took place between East and West, led by Moscow's prestigious Bolshoi Ballet. Perhaps surprisingly, also popular in the West was the Russian Army Ensemble, whilst doubtless its ranks contained an appropriate number of KGB agents, it was essentially a large singing and dancing group, and very exuberant and entertaining it was too. This collection evokes memories of visits and recordings by the Russian Army Ensemble and others, and although the subject matter is often very serious and sometimes comical by Western tastes, no one can doubt the tunefulness, vigour and sincerity of the result.
