2001 release. This first disc in Arbiter's Feodor Chaliapin series finds him in a St. Petersburg hotel room singing unaccompanied folk songs, Russian arias, and more. The recordings date from 1901 and are among the earliest examples of the Russian singing that raged throughout Europe. Several unissued test discs were accessed, and Arbiter has yanked these unique copies out of their isolation and given new life through restoration. Includes performances of compositions by Theo Koeneman, Mikhail Slonov, Genary Korganov, Charles Gounod, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Mikhail Glinka, Manikin-Nestruev, Arrigo Boito, Modest Mussorgsky & Igor Stravinsky, Gioacchino Rossini, and Leo Délibes.
