Reviews

‘Žarko Cvejić and Drago Starc are both good as the rival brothers and Dušan Popović makes a commanding figure of Shaklovity… The chorus sing magnificently and the orchestra, under a conductor with a most vital sense of rhythm, are first rate… The various effects… are all well carried out and the successful recording of the opera is a good omen for the Boris which is to come.’ Gramophone

‘Both Marfa and Dosifei are in good hands: Melanija Bugarinović possesses what seems to be a contralto of impressive quality and richness, while Miroslav Čangalović… is a moving Dosifey.’ High Fidelity
