Description

Golden Cockerel on CD

Of this 1985 recording by the Sofia National Opera, conducted by Dimiter Manolov, BBC Music Magazine wrote that 'the famous 19-minute coloratura show-piece... is beautifully encompassed' by Elena Stoyanova, who sings the role of the Queen of Shemakha. The role of King Dodon is sung by Hungarian bass Nikolai Stoilov. Recorded in 1985. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov is one of the most important Russian composers of romantic opera. His operas, often on themes taken from Russian folklore and fairy tales, abound in colorful and atmospheric scenes, with just the right tinge of spicy Russian melodic flavors. The Golden Cockerel, based on a tale by Pushkin, was censored by the Russian authorities, accused of hidden political motives. This performance offers the complete, uncut version of the opera, one of Rimsky's finest and best known. Excellent performance by great Bulgarian voices and forces, a superb recording from the Balkanton catalogue.
