|From humble beginnings in Russia during the first decade of Stalin’s rule to enviable international acclaim that has followed them beyond the fall of the Iron Curtain and the Soviet Union, The Red Army Choir is arguably the world’s leading and most visual choral/dance ensemble.
Despite the unstoppable march of time and the fall of the old-style Soviet bloc, The Alexandrov Red Army Choir has survived intact. Now directed by Leonid Malev, many imitation Red Army choral troupes exist today but only the original Alexandrov Red Army Choir embodies the rich history and undiminished spirit of the Russian Red Army. This remarkable live concert performance from Paris in 2003 captures the verve, the power and the traditional musical excellence of Russia’s most famous chorus at their very best.
