New musical album commemorating the Victory Day is our Sound Library
Gramophone records with the war years’ songs of the 40-50’s occupy a special place in the Museum Collection fund. Our musical albums provide an opportunity to hear the authentic sound of the gramophone of the war period and live voices of performers who have become legends.
This year the Museum Collection compiled a new musical selection of the war period songs to commemorate the Victory Day. It includes the works by Tikhon Khrennikov, Isaak Dunayevsky, Nikita Bogoslovsky, Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi, the well-known Sevastopol Waltz by K. Listov, songs from the Soviet movies, such as “At 6 P.M. after the War”, “The Goalkeeper”, “A Great Life”, “Seekers of Happiness” and others; the immortal voices of the Soviet pop music performers - Nina Panteleeva, Klavdiya Shulzhenko, Leonid Utesov, Mark Bernes, and several songs performed by The Alexandrov Ensemble, which is historically inextricably linked with the creation and recording of the war years’ music and was the main on-stage performance group that sang war songs and lifted the mood of the soldiers in the war years.
We have prepared the review articles about creative work of the composers and performers, as well as about music and cinema of the Great Patriotic War period. The details are in the sections AUTHORS and REVIEWS.
