    Thank you very much Mr. Kharitonov for sharing these wonderful videos with the world. I was particularly moved by your fabulous 1965 rendition of “Ej, Uhnem”, the greatest performance of this song I have ever seen or heard.

    Hello Mr Kharitinov:

    I am a great admirer of your art and the alexandrov´s ensemble. Congratulations for this videos I enjoyed so much. But could you tell me if is it possible to get a copy in DVD of the 1965 concert at Tchaikovsky Hall?
    Where could I buy it? I got from youtube your videos but downloading quality from youtube is only 360p.(poor quality).

      You can get this DVD from us. But the quality of video and sound is still not very good. However it’s the only version you can get.
