The unfortunate limitation of people only slightly familiar with Russian folk songs to assume that the male choir or chorus is the only vocal vehicle, can now have their horizons expanded with this mixed choir directed by S. Krivobokov. Recorded live at Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, you will have the glory of hearing some of the finest voices in all of Russia. You will be regaled with a smattering of familiar tunes in the robust male vocal tradition such as "The Wild Steppe" and "Dense Unknown Taiga" on which the women's voices will be relegated to creating the sweetness which typically tenor's provided in the all male ensembles. However you will also find women's voices in leads of unparalleled beauty and at other times the lead is shared by men and women duets before the entire chorus is brought into the songs to create the robust fullness that is unique to Russian music. If you have only one recording of Russian Folk Songs in your library, let it be this one!
