We, the admins of this blog, were very excited and happy to be able to visit the Alexandrov Ensemble’s Museum in Moscow. The visit was arranged by our friend and fan of the Ensemble Denis Modzelevsky with Evgeny Vladimirovich Alexandrov, (the grandson of Alexander Alexandrov), who personally gave us a tour! We are extremely grateful to both for their kindness and hospitality. Огромное спасибо!
The blog admins were very fortunate to sit in on part of a rehearsal! Don’t they sound GREAT?! (And it’s just a rehearsal!)
The admins are excited to announce that the Alexandrov Ensemble will be featured in an upcoming broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Several songs will be featured to include Leonid Kharitonov’s soloist debut performance of The Cliff. The program will be broadcast on the 4th of December and should be available online to many fans via live stream. Click here for more details.
Many thanks to Kathryn Shinko for creating this wonderful cross-stitch portrait of soloist Nikolay Gres!
On September 9, 1948, the Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble gave a concert in the Heinz-Steyer Stadium in Dresden, Germany. This was part of an extensive tour of post-War Germany.
