About

Wergo continues its Shchedrin Edition with a world première recording. The Russian choral opera Boyarina Morozova describes the schism in the Russian Orthodox Church that began in the 17th-century. It documents the life and the torment of Boyarina Morozova and her sister Princess Urusova, scored for four soloists, mixed choir, trumpet, timpani and percussion. The text derives from The Life of the Archpriest Awwakum by himself and The Life of Boyarina Morozova with a libretto by the composer.
 
Recorded at the world première, 30th October 2006 at the Moscow Conservatory.
