CD93269 Genady Pischaev - one of the most beautiful lyric tenors you

Genady Pischaev is one of those little known Soviet tenor altinos of the 50s-70s who deserves greater fame if for nothing more then for having a uniquely beautiful voice. I came across Mr. Pischaev accidentally 3-4 months ago while listening to the Russian-language 1955 rendition of I Pagliacci. The rendition was good but what really raised my eyebrows was Arlecchino's serenade sung by Mr. Pischaev. Mr. Pischaev's Beppe was the closest to what I still consider to be the ultimate rendition of Arlecchino's serenade by Gaetano Pini-Corsi. Mr. Pischaev's gorgeous timbre reminds me of the Russian greats of the past: Lemeshev and Sobinov. Among more recent singers Pischaev sometimes sounds like one of my all time favorite bel canto tenors, Ernesto Palacio. In Russia Mr. Pischaev was primarily known for his Russian-language rendition of Smith's Serenade from 'La jolie fille de Perth' by Georges Bizet and for his role as Astrologer in Rimsky-Korsakov's The Golden Cockerel. Anyway, Mr. Pischaev apparently is still working today and this is what is said about him on the Internet: Born 30.7.1927. Acclaimed Artist of Russian Soviet Federative Socialistic Republic (1965). In 1953 finished Moscow conservatory and started working as a soloist of the Moscow Philharmonic. Gave a lot of concerts. In his repertoire were opera arias, romances and folk songs. In 1963-1964 he recorded all of Chaikovsky's romances (and again in 1965, 1971, 1975). Never took part in operatic stagings. (Both The Golden Cockerel & I Pagliacci were sung in a concert performance- arkadinho) From 1980 - teaching in a vocal faculty of the State Institute for Theatrical Arts.
