Initially a symbol of the triumph of Russia and the allied forces over Nazism (their voices first celebrated the bravery of the soldiers of the Red Army, who they accompanied on the field of historic battles), the Red Army Choir has become one of the greatest ensembles of international popular music. The Choir, founded before the Second World War, has sung on every continent preserving its aura and sublimating the vicissitudes of history.
With this first official biography the reader will be able to re-live the political and musical history of the world (from the tsarist regime to the U.S.S.R. and subsequently to the Russian Federation) through the destiny of these extraordinary men.
Nina Wolf is a writer and biographer. She has published a number of articles designed for the wider public and has often travelled to Russia, taking part in the organization of many projects revolving around the Red Army Choir.
