2002 release. In performances, Russian opera singer Feodor Chaliapin distributed printed programs that included the many songs he performed and simply called out his choices. Arbiter accessed many previously unpublished recordings of Russian songs of which he was an unparalleled master, also having known several of the composers heard here. The sessions from 1913 and 1914 are extremely clear, as Arbiter had access to vinyl test pressings, making the century-old discs sound quite recent. These recordings from 1913-1921 include performances of compositions by Sergei Liapunov, Mikhaïl Slonov, Anton Rubinstein, Edvard Grieg, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Johannes Brahms, Theo Koenemann, Franz Schubert, Nikolai Sokolov, Mikhail Glinka, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Modest Mussorgsky, Eyvind Alnaes, Leonid Malashkin.
