The main contents of Volume 7 is comprised of the concerts recorded in 1954 - 1964. In this sense, the volume represents a continuation of the preceding volume, which included the concerts recorded in 1943 - 1954. Volume 7 contains a total of seven concerts. To note, one album is dedicated specifically to the concerts in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg). An additional album (CDs 7 and 8) includes the latest cycles of the radio studio recordings in 1962 - 1963 (romances by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff). We considered it very important to publish these cycles all together under one cover for the first time ever. Besides, taking into consideration the records issued in 1960s, it is worth mentioning that the Nighttime romance (Notch) on the verses by Y. Polonsky has never been published for some reason.
Additions to the concerts deserve special attention. A unique, never known before recording by Lemeshev made at the birthday of Olga L. Knipper-Chekhova is being presented for the first time ever. This is not a well know recording by Lemeshev and Kozlovsky, in which they congratulate Olga Leonardovna on the 50th anniversary of the Moscow Art Theatre (MKhT). On this recording, we can hear how Lemeshev sings several romances and songs to Knipper-Chekhova, and, besides, announces his numbers himself (!). The appearance of Lemeshev himself is being announced by Alexandra A. Yablochkina, the patriarch actress of the Maly Theatre and the then Chairwoman of the Russian Theatre Society (VTO). After Lemeshev’s appearance and in conclusion of the evening, Angelina O. Stepanova, the MKhT patriarch actress, reads aloud the letter from Knipper-Chekhova.
In addition, one can listen to four more excellent recordings on this disc from the Moscow radio studio stock. These are the romances recorded in 1950, which have never been published before in our collection.
The next album called “Leningrad” includes, along with the concerts at the BZP, or the Grand Hall of the Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) Philarmonia, the rarest studio recordings being published for the first time ever. They were made on the Leningrad radio and were accompanied by the pianist E. Lebedev. Some other recordings were made together with S. Shaposhnikov (baritone). This small cycle of romances by Tchaikovsky, which was recorded in 1951, attracts everybody not only by their interpretation, but also by the unique version of the Usnee ("Do Fall Asleep") on the verses by Merezhkovsky. Its studio version is known in this cycle only, although there were two more concert recordings in Moscow, which were both issued earlier by our company for the first time ever.
As a supplement to the concerts, disc 5 includes two songs by Robert Schumann. It is worth mentioning that songs by Schumann are completely absent in Leveshev’s discography. In this case, we provide a fragment of one of the latest concerts, the records of which have not been preserved in the radio studio stock, but they have been luckily recorded on a tape recorder from the direct radio broadcasting. The same happened to the Okhotnik (“The Hunter”) by E. Grieg, a very rare song in Lemeshev’s repertoire. Also, in this disc and in the one that follows, we included two interviews with Lemeshev on the following subjects: “From the Song to the Opera” and “About the folk song in the Opera”. M. Nikiforov
