Editorial Reviews

A Film By Elisabeth Kapnist

Memories Of The Great Russian Bass

Fyodor Chaliapin was, at the turn of the 20th century, one of the greatest opera singers Russia ever produced. His talent was simply colossal. With a naturally beautiful voice, a strong physical presence and painstaking preparation for all his roles, he created characters of such depth that audiences were spellbound. Shot on location in Paris and Moscow, this biographical film includes fascinating newsreel footage and archive film of Ivan the Terrible and Don Quichotte. It also features interviews with members of Chaliapin's family, and many who were inspired by him including Sergei Leiferkus and Alexei Mochalov.

This bio was missing a lot--eg, Toscanini quietly said Bravo when he heard Chaliapin sing in rehearsal--and said Chaliapin was the most talented singer he had ever meet--Chaliapin bombed in the US because of his too-realistic behavior in Barber of Seville--other opera singers were astonished at his acting ability--and his friendship with Rachmaninoff was just about unique in friendships between men--and what about his visit to Tolstoy with Rachmaninoff?

I'm not sure excatly why this failed to satisfy me. Certainly the film has all of the basic information and the short clips with his daughter (I wish her interview was more extended) are fascinating. Possibly it's that the narrator's voice is uninteresting or perhaps it's because so little of Chaliapin's singing is used. In any case, it is not a bad effort, but simply one which will have to do until a better one is available.
