Are you impressed by the king who died upon the appearance of the young prince in Boris Godunov by his acting and singing? Are you impressed by this successor of Chialipin, the singer whose repertoire is the widest (Italian/German/ Russian) whose influence is far and wide? If you do, you can't miss this one.
Here Boris Christoff will share with you his musical background; and how he compares and mixes Russian with Italian singing; what makes Italian singing supreme; and what diction and phrasing mean in singing; how he termed an opera classical or modern; what operas he has the highest esteem for, and how he sees Mussorgsky... In between each short interview, we will be able to hear him sing the excerpts under discussion which are all in colour and in good sound."
