Orchestra and Choir of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre, Alexander Lazarev


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Kirill Molchanov’s opera The Dawns Here Are Quiet.

The composer of the opera attained his nationwide fame thanks to, first of all, his lyrical songs, which are now considered a golden repertoire for academic and popular singers alike (There Are So Many Golden Lights, No Hiding from People in the Village, Here Come the Soldiers, Heart, Be Quiet and many others).

Meanwhile, Kirill Molchanov wrote eight operas to his own librettos, ballets Macbeth and Three Cards, and music for theatre productions and motion pictures, including true gems of the domestic cinematograph (It Happened in Penkovo, On Seven Winds, We’ll Live Till Monday).

The opera is based on Boris Vasiliev’s short novel of the same name. It is a stirring story of a tragic demise of young female anti-aircraft gunners first published in 1969, which is still one of the most widely read books about the Great Patriotic War. In 1972, Stanislav Rostotsky’s famous film with music by Kirill Molchanov premiered in cinemas across the country.

The opera is composed in a simple and accessible language. However, Zhenya’s romance to the poem 'Wait for Me' by Konstantin Simonov is the most popular piece from the opera - without any direct link to the plot, this fragment is a generalized symbol of millions of people whose lives and feelings were cut short by the war.

This recording of the opera was made in 1976 by the artists, choir and orchestra of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre featuring leading soloists of the opera company - Galina Kalinina, Galina Borisova, Klara Kadinskaya, Artur Eisen and others. Conducted by Alexander Lazarev.

Bolshoi Theatre Choir and Orchestra, Alexander Melik-Pashayev


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of a wonderful but now so rarely performed lyric and comic opera - Tchaikovsky’s Cherevichki.

The opera was initially named 'Vakula the Smith'. In 1874, Tchaikovsky won a competition announced by the Russian Music Society for the best opera to a libretto by Yakov Polonsky based on the famous story 'Christmas Eve' by Nikolai Gogol from his collection 'Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka'. However, Tchaikovsky was left displeased with his piece and reworked it in 1887. The opera was then staged at the Bolshoi Theatre, and the first night of Cherevichki became Tchaikovsky’s debut as a conductor.

Gogol was one of Tchaikovsky’s favourite authors. The composer liked to stay in the Ukraine, in his sister’s manor Kamenka. Tchaikovsky brought to life the characters from Gogol’s story, their lives, legends and emotions, with the help of folk tunes, dance rhythms and expressive lyric intonations. The opera also has a gallant intermezzo - the scene at St Petersburg court in the 18th century which also attracted the composer in a later opera, 'The Queen of Spades'.

This recording of Cherevichki was realized in the late 1940s by the Bolshoi troupe led by the outstanding conductor Alexander Melik-Pashayev and featured some of the best performers of the Bolshoi of the time, such as Elena Kruglikova, Elizaveta Antonova, Georgy Nelepp, Andrei Ivanov, Maxim Mikhailov and others.

Michael Nyman - An opera in two acts (Libretto by Michael Hastings)

Michael Nyman - An opera in two acts (Libretto by Michael Hastings)
ID: MNRCD111_112
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

The tenth release on MN Records, and the second opera recording for the label, Love Counts is a love story between the unlikeliest of couples: Avril, a lecturer in mathematics at a major college who has divorced a man who physically abused her, and Patsy, a middle-weight fighter at the end of his career who cannot read or recognise numbers.

Michael Nyman uses Riemenschneider's collection of 371 Bach chorale harmonisations to help Patsy find his voice - they are harmonically fragmented, sped up, slowed down, overlaid with themselves. Just as Dr P, the Alzheimer's suffering protagonist of Nyman's The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, has 'his' Schumann, so, in Love Counts, Patsy, a parallel sufferer, has 'his' Bach.

Award-winning writer Michael Hastings had previously worked with Nyman on the libretto for the opera Man and Boy: Dada, also available on MN Records.

Love Counts was commissioned by the Badisches Staatstheater, Karlesruhe, Germany and first performed there on 12th March 2005, directed by Robert Tannenbaum. This is a recording of the Almeida Theatre (London) production of Love Counts where it was performed in July 2006 by the Michael Nyman Band, bass baritone Andrew Slater and soprano Helen Williams, designed by Peter McKintosh and directed by Lindsay Posner.

An Opera in two acts
Libretto: Michael Hastings
The generously packaged, slip cased 2-CD set contains a four-colour 44-page booklet with complete libretto.

Man and Boy: Dada is the first in a triptych of chamber operas written by Nyman with librettist Michael Hastings. It tells the story of the unlikely friendships between the ageing Dadaist artist Kurt Schwitters, who is exiled in war-torn London; a 12-year-old boy called Michael, who shares the artist's obsession with collecting London Transport bus tickets; and Michael's mother, widowed by the war. The recording reunites the cast from the UK premiere performance at the Almeida Theatre in July 2004 - tenor John Graham Hall as Schwitters, William Sheldon as the boy, and soprano Vivian Tierney as the boy's mother. Paul McGrath conducts the Michael Nyman Band.

Nyman's identification with the storyline runs deep, for as a child growing up in South Chingford in the 1950s, he hoarded bus tickets as part of a collecting mania that also included cigarette cards, matchbox labels, coins and train numbers. In 2001, Hastings approached Nyman to suggest collaborating on a radio play about a post-war London boy who collected bus tickets. Nyman naturally recognised himself in the main character. But he also had an extra element to contribute to the story line. He had recently returned from Dusseldorf where he saw a Schwitters exhibition and discovered the artist's recurring use of bus tickets in his collages. The fusion of the two characters' mutual fixation leads to a friendship which drives the opera's plot which also reveals the terrible loss suffered by Schwitters as he was forced by the Nazis to leave Germany.

The Almeida production of Man and Boy: Dada was greeted with critical acclaim. "Touching and witty, naïve and profound, Man and Boy: Dada is a journey, well worth taking," said Nick Kimberley in The Evening Standard. Writing in the Financial Times, David Murray called it a "genuine success," and Ivan Hewett in The Daily Telegraph found it a "a subtle and touching piece of music-theatre."
