The story of the opera

Overture
A cheerful mood ata Czech country fair, with the folk dancing and singing, young couples meeting, weddings being arranged.

Act 1
Mařenka and Jeník want to marry. However, Mařenka’s father, Krušina, has other ideas. He wants Mařenka to marry a boy she has never met, Vašek, the son of Micha, who is a wealthy landowner. The marriage-broker Kecal is hired to broker the marriage between Mařenka and Vašek. Kecal is made aware of the relationship between Mařenka and Jeník, and becomes determined to break them up in order to facilitate the marriage of Mařenka with Vašek.

Act 2
Mařenka and Vašek meet each other by accident and, while Mařenka works out who Vašek is, on the other hand, Vašek is too much of a simpleton to realize who she is. Mařenka starts painting a picture of Vašek’s intended bride as a woman who would make his life a total misery if he should marry her. This turns Vašek off the idea of marrying his intended wife, and also makes him interested in this girl who obviously has his best interests at heart. Meanwhile, Kecal starts his campaign to pay off Jeník, so that Jeník will renounce his right to marry Mařenka. Kecal eventually reaches a price which Jeník finds agreeable, and Jeník agrees to sell the rights to his fiancée for 300 guilders. Jeník also specifies that this is on condition that Mařenka marries Mícha’s son. Since Kecal intends Mařenka to marry Vašek, so that he can get his money, he readily agrees. As soon as the contract is signed, the entire town repudiates Jeník.

Act 3
A travelling circus comes to town, and Vašek becomes entranced with the gypsy, Esmeralda. There is some trouble with one of the acts, and Vašek is persuaded to assist the circus. Mařenka is angry with Jeník for what he has done, and she angrily turns her back on him and agrees to marry Vašek. When both sets of parents meet Mařenka, the appearance of Jeník at the meeting results in the revelation that Jeník is the long-lost son of Mícha from his first marriage, and that Jeník had been hounded out of house and home by his stepmother, Háta (who is also Vašek’s mother). As a result of this revelation, the terms of the contract between Kecal and Jeník, whereby Jeník gave her up (on condition that Mařenka should marry the son of Mícha), allows Mařenka to marry either Jeník or Vašek. Mařenka chooses Jeník, and Kecal is left with the embarrassment of having paid Jeník 300 guilders in order for Jeník to give up the right to marry Mařenka, to Jeník, himself. At this time, a frightened child rushes in and exclaims that a bear has escaped from the circus. As everybody cowers, the bear wanders in and pulls off its head, revealing that it was just the immature Vašek disguised in a bear costume for the circus. Embarrassed, Háta drags Vašek off and the parents and the villagers congratulate the happy couple.

The Organ of Kazan State Constrvatory, Russia
Recorded: May 15, 2000 in the State Great Hall after Salikh Saidashev Kazan State Conservatory


RUBIN ABDULLIN (b. 1950) graduated from the Kazan State Conservatoire in 1973 with a degree in piano performance under Professor E. A. Monaszon. In 1974, he got the qualification of organist at the Leningrad State Conservatoire, where he studied in the class of Professor N. I. Oksentyan. Later, he perfected his skill as a teacher and organist in postgraduate studies at the Moscow State Conservatoire under the guidance fof Professor L. I. Roizman. Since 1973, Rubin Abdullin has been teaching a specialized piano and organ class at the Kazan Conservatoire. In 1988, Rubin Kabirovich Abdullin was elected rector of the Kazan State Conservatoire. In 1992, he was awarded the title of professor. Largely thanks to the efforts of this musician, Kazan has become one of the centers of organ art in Russia. In 1998, he founded the academic department of organ, harpsichord and harp at the N. G. Zhiganov Kazan State Conservatoire. As a result of the pedagogical activity of Professor Abdullin, the Kazan Organ School was formed - one of the most significant schools of Russian organ performance. Abdullin partnered on the stage with V. Gergiev, V. Fedoseev, L. Kremer, M. Gantvarg, D. Geringas, S. Kravchenko.The musician was awarded the highest state awards of Russia. The cycle of J. S. Bach’s “Clavier Übung III” (“Organ Mass”) occupies a special place in the musician’s extensive discography. The record was made in 2000 on the Flentrop organ in the Great Concert Hall of the N. G. Zhiganov Kazan State Conservatoire.
