In 1955 Decca recorded seven Russian operas with the Belgrade National Opera – recordings that have for too long been unfairly neglected. Now they receive their CD premieres using the stereo tapes. The title role of Prince Igor taken by Dušan Popović, who also sung the role with the Vienna State Opera and the Opéra de Monte-Carlo. He is joined by other stalwarts of the company. ‘The performance is a real company effort and has the attendant advantage of sounding like a live one … Popović is a splendidly rich-voiced, virile Igor, who gives a moving portrayal … it was a pleasure to hear again Bugarinović’s seductive-sounding Konchakovna.’ Opera
