Russian Operatic Arias for Bass
This landmark series opens up exciting vistas of challenging and rewarding repertoire for the discerning and adventurous singer.
As with the Peters companion volumes of French Operatic Arias, this Russian series presents many of the justly celebrated arias, but also juxtaposes them with other less familiar gems, which undoutedly deserve wider recognition.
Much of the selected repertoire is eminently suitable for audition purposes, so that each volume is a treasure trove for professional singers and students.
