    It is lovely to hear this great singer speak with his heart. I love his smile and his voice he ranks with the great Russian singers a man like Hovrostovsky from Siberia, brothers of the troops who saved Moscow from the Germans in the great patriotic war.
    His Song of the Flea is second only to fydor and his dark eyed cossack girl which looks simple when he sings it is much harder for the weaker singer. The FSU has many songs his is one I am so happy that he is his lovely way can take the west on what is a beautiful journey into that great secret russian music and culture
